Right now the six Startup Weekend teams are doing final checks and making sure everything is working and ready for their presentations to the Startup Weekend judges at the Ohio University Innovation Center…
These hardworking teams have wordsmithed, polished, and practiced their presentations for the competition at 4:00. Prototype products and mocked-up (or working) web sites have been coded.
Each team started Friday evening with just an idea and has sought to put together a winning product and business model from scratch. Coaches and mentors helped along the way. Nerves and excitement are running high.
A few snapshots from the final hours:
