Share Article

Indino founder and recent college graduate, Luis Batista, devises a solution to a problem faced by 19.7 million college students living in America today with his creation of Indino. The University of South Florida's clubs and organizations are showing immediate support having seen the beta, and are looking forward to implementing Indino in the upcoming school year.

Goodbye Calendar, Hello Life! is the tagline of the newest solution to finding out what is going on around you.

College life is undeniably busy. The vast majority of students remain in a four-year state of perpetual movement; shuffling from classes to the library, sporting events, club meetings, social gatherings, study groups, part-time jobs, internships, community activities, and everything in between. For Luis Batista, recent graduate of the University of South Florida (USF), this sort of chaotic scheduling was all too familiar.

Despite a demanding course load and work schedule during his freshman year, Luis aspired to expand his social life. He remembers feeling aimless, however, in his search to acquaint himself with peers, establish new relationships, join clubs, or build connections. As a matter of fact, in hindsight Luis recalls frequent occurrences of entirely overlooking countless events that he would have otherwise enjoyed attending had he known of their existence. Upon informally surveying USF’s student body, Luis found that a similar frustration was being experienced by nearly all.

So began the inception of what would come to be known as Indino. He met with Chris Abbott at Abbeton, a seed investment partner, and together they drafted his idea for a mobile application that could compile events from a wide variety of sources and organize them under one single system. App users would be able to create a calendar of events that corresponded to their organization, and subscribe to the calendars of others depending upon their hobbies and interests. For example, a club leader, fraternity president, indie band lead singer and sports coach could each separately utilize Indino by generating a calendar of dates and times specific to their own activities. In turn, the busy college student who is a member of that club, fraternity, band and team, can organize his events in one succinct place ensuring his knowledge and attendance of all.

Upon the examination of Luis’s proposal and a private viewing of the beta, USF administrators demonstrated immediate affirmation and support for the project, eagerly offering to be the first of many colleges and universities that would come to employ the innovative software of Indino.

Soon after Luis’s successful arrangement with USF, representatives of the City of Tampa discovered the remarkable potential of Indino as well. Consequently, they too confirmed their advocacy on behalf of all Tampa officials, business owners, and residents, and consented to assist in developing further contacts to support Indino’s expansion.

Indino is prepared to launch out of beta in July. Obtain early access by visiting http://www.GetIndino.com where you can register for an account and watch the startup video. With its capability of ensuring fully informed campuses and cities across the country, Indino is unquestionably destined for success. Are you Indino?
