A recap of the first day at #SWDub
This post originally appeared on blog.up.co
The November edition of Startup Weekend kicked off in Dublin on a very high note. It was interesting to see a good number of entrepreneurs - designers, developers, and business people gathered for an amazing weekend.
It sure didn't take long before the ideas started flowing. The 'Half Baked' activity just went to show how creative people could be on the fly with ideas like Green Samurias, Unicorn Shampoo, and Baby Microphone - solutions to real life problems with interesting business models too.
It was great to see people pitching startup ideas and forming teams across different areas including health, mobile, communication, social media, enterprise, productivity, education, travel and more during the night. You can check out some of the favourites ideas here.
Perhaps the most important word for the evening was from event judge and Googler, Anatolyl when he said:
