Sparefoot Gets Hat Trick, Wins Third Austin Startup Games
Self storage marketplace Sparefoot has pulled a hat trick in the Austin Startup Games, with its third win in last weekend's startup competition. The company scored 28 points, tromping competitors like Boundless Network (10 points) and bringing in celebrity bodybuilder Hafthor Thor Bjornsson as an "employee" of the company to compete in the games. Bjornsson is known for his role as "The Mountain" in Game of Thrones, and appeared to be featured in huge number of the social media posts from the Austin Startup Games.
