Over the course of the three days, ideas were challenged, iterated, progressed and some even changed entirely.
“As an agency that specialises in rapid prototyping and design thinking for enterprise businesses, it was amazing to see teams (many of who had never met before Friday) develop a concept, business model and pitch a commercial product by the end of the weekend. Judging any concept produced in such a short amount of time is extremely difficult but what was more interesting was how the teams prioritised the output of the time they had together. Every team seemed to have faced different challenges throughout the weekend, some due to the complexity of the concept and some due to the difficulty in demonstrating value. Credit to the coaches that took part and helped the teams throughout the weekend, it was really positive to see how important the teams considered user research and analysis when shaping and proving value in their ideas.” - Tom Gamblin, Evident Founder / Director
The Techstars Startup weekend was the perfect setting for ideas to flourish and for the best local entrepreneurial talent to really stretch their creative legs.
