54 hours later and it's all over.
We've had ideas pitched, teams formed, brain dumped, customers developed, validations made, leads generated, sales made, revenue raised, mentorship recieved, and food consumed.
No doubt the judges had their jobs cut out for them but after all said and done here are the winners at Startup Weekend Dublin - July 2015 edition.
There was special mention to team FitMyBits for their solution to helping women get the right fit for bras. There were the only team to have made sales over the weekend to the tune of Euro 125.00 from 5 customers.
In 3rd place - Comrade, an app to help find friends in a new city
Runner up, PhotoCAD - a simple app helps you convert images taken with your smartphone camera into CAD files
And the winners of the July 2015 edition of Startup Weekend Dublin is....Book-E, a digital platform that enables users to bet on e-sports.
Perhaps more impressive is that the team was made up of really young members - 16 & 17 year old with the pitch presented by the former. The team won a trip to Berlin for a large hackathon courtesy of @WelcomeStartup - DCU Ryan Academy.
Congratulations to all the teams and it was really a close one and many thanks to all who made this happen - volunteers, organizer, mentors, judges, sponsors, facilitator, host, and guests.
Till next time.
