Words cannot describe how I feel this Monday morning….the passion, the emotions, the excitement from this past shenzhen startupweekend was surreal. Its about the sponsors, the mentors, the judges, and most importantly, the entrepreneurs who came out all weekend took risk and time to build something!
We had some mobile apps made in a weekend! We had database driven websites, flash videos. Overwhelming amount of work, passion.
1st place Winner: Dress real clothes matchmaker for girls to help pair their dresses
2nd prize: pengpeng store– NFC (near field communication)
3rd prize: T-plus, crowdsourcing t-shirt business
I’m getting tons of people asking me for the results – want to type more but have a meeting with more Shanghai investors – will finish this post later!
For the record, we were updating and adjusting judges and mentors all the way to the end. Because we are always updating shenzhen.startupweekend.org, I want to have these judges and mentors in this blog post:
