The day came. Venue is ready. Name tags are printed. Facilitator made the final tech-check. You can almost touch the excitement of the organisers. 5pm, first participant arrived and I am happy to announce the Startup Weekend Zürich 2015 fall Edition officially started.
Almost 80 participants, 80 ambitious and enthusiastic people from all around the world came to test and compete their startup ideas or help others to reach success. We have startupers from UK, France, Hungary, Slovnenia, Italy, Denmark, Germany and more - besides Switzerland. We heard 33 pitches, all very good ideas. So the competition is already big from the very beginning, since only 13 ideas were chosen to be developed during the weekend. Teams have been formed, they have already started to work and put the base down for their projects.
Teams in 2015 Fall are:
- Frame it!
- Link nexus
- Custom Motor
- White card
- Reality Estate
- No Q
- Indoor Locate
- Flat Form
I can say that everyone went to bed exhausted but full of experiences after the first afternoon. Many thanks for Microsoft Schweiz to provide us this beautiful venue for the event.
