This summer, the Dingman Center will be conducting interviews with the fifteen student startups who are participating in our Terp Startup summer accelerator at the College Park WeWork. Participating student entrepreneurs received a stipend up to $5,000 that would enable them to work exclusively on their startups over eight weeks in the summer.

Hangry is a fast-casual food delivery service that is operated via drones. The traditional car and driver method has three major issues: high prices (delivery fee, service fee, surge fee — sometimes, and tip), long wait times, and more often than not driver errors will arise. These three major pain points for customers make delivery an unpleasant experience, especially when people are paying high fees. We have proved that by using drones we are able to provide a food delivery service that not only gives customers an exciting experience, but entirely eliminates these three major pain points.
