This is a KahootsHQ success story.


Jon Donais was just finishing up his master’s degree in computer sciences at Windsor University. He had this idea for an app for teachers. He met Samantha Burton, another master’s student in computer science in class, and they joined forces to develop it.

At this point, Jon had made a profile up on KahootsHQ, connected with another member and began working on a project of theirs. Unfortunately, after about a month, things didn’t really take shape and their project wasn’t working out. He was about to take his profile off of KahootsHQ.

Enter Steve Hann — he had an idea, quite different from that of Jon and Samantha’s. His idea was a food delivery app with a unique twist, but he was in search of a developer. He’d tried countless sites but wasn’t clicking with their members. Two months went by with no luck. Then he posted his project, BringMeFood, on KahootsHQ, and quickly found Jon.

BringMeFood, a startup currently undergoing a name change, offers third party delivery services for students at Brock University. The best part about their story? 

Their success came after they built the right like-minded team with KahootsHQ. This is a Kahoots success story. Kahoots provides the space to link young talents with relevant people and projects. It’s a platform dedicated to connecting, creating, and growing — and it’s bursting with potential. This is where you find your team members, and the people who are going to bring your idea into fruition. 

Jon, Samantha, and Steve compared the business models of their two ideas, and decided that at the moment, BringMeFood had the most potential.

They’re now in the process of incorporating their business, designing a dynamic vesting agreement to split equity, and are going to draft their shareholders agreement next month. What was once an idea is now a reality.

This is a story of waiting, of trial and error, of having to put one’s own idea on hold — but also of finding the right people and team building, of working together, and of ultimate success.

Will your story be next? Stay tuned, Kahooties!
