Visualizing Shared Work Fleets
By Jin Han (SI)
My name is Jin Han and I am a Master’s student studying Computer Science at Washington University in St. Louis.
This summer, I took part in Skandalaris Center Summer Internship Program and my intern host was HiHo Mobility. HiHo Mobility is a startup that provides a complete suite of Mobile Workforce Management (MWM) tools for companies with staff who work “in the field”. The software was created when a founder needed easy-to-use, powerful and affordable tools to manage his company’s workforce. Recently, HiHo started offering shared work fleets that help tradespeople get more jobs done on campus. It provides On-demand access to all tools, supplies and rides.
I really enjoyed the workspace provided by my host. It is CIC St. Louis, near the Cortex metro station. It is an open, convenient, clean, modern co-working space. There is a kitchen offering free coffee, soft drinks and snacks. Their phone booths, meeting rooms, popup lounges and printing machines are convenient. I had the chance to network people working there and enjoyed a variety of the Cortex innovation community events. Furthermore, I enjoyed the Wednesday panels organized by Skandalaris Center where I had in-depth discussions with startups from St. Louis innovation community. I also moderated a panel on July 31 and received acclaim from the participating startups and the audiences.
This summer internship at Skandalaris Center is fruitful and I really appreciate it. As an international student, I explored the St. Louis innovation community and achieved an in-depth understanding of American entrepreneurship. I would recommend anyone who had a passion of innovation to apply it.
