Stuttgart has witness the largest Start-up Weekend so far. The event took place in the Literaturhaus last weekend from Friday evening to Sunday evening. Can’t say exactly how many young entrepreneurs took part in this superbly organized event by the Start-up Stuttgart folks, but is not the quantity that matters, it is the quality; and when it comes down to the quality of the participants, it was off the charts.
The participants decided to work in 13 teams on some great ideas that ranged from social engagement apps to e-commerce and from WordPress plugins to catering services; all with the help and guidance of one of the best panel of mentors made up of renowned professionals of various backgrounds such as marketing, business development, programing and last but not least finance.
After 48 hours of hard work and networking, where we saw some participants drooping out, others finding investors for further pursuing their entrepreneurial ideas, 3 winners were selected in the following categories: best pitch, most innovative idea and the overall winner 🙂
