SLO start-up business honored

A business started by a group of Cal Poly graduates is being honored by a state organization dedicated to small businesses.

GuideKick is a company that builds virtual tour travel apps for historical places around the world. Mark Paddon, Aaron Rivera, Joshua Holland, and Garrett Lauringson started the company by making an app for Hearst Castle. They came up with the idea after a graduation celebration trip to Machu Picchu and their frustrations about a lack of information available about what they were seeing each day.

The four will be honored with four other start-ups in Fresno at a ceremony sponsored by the California Small Business Development Centers Network.
