The Hacker’s High: Friendslist Founder on Staying Focused

“It’s an adrenaline rush, it’s like my drug,” says Friendslist founder and TechStars NY alum Jonathan Wegener, about building new products during all night hackathons. Along with co-founder Benny Wong, Wegener has produced some of the more creative apps of the last six months. “Right now we are trying to stay focused on getting traction for Friendslist and iterating on that product. But I know that I will end up taking a break here or there, it’s addictive creating those little viral hits.”
