Its bright and early on a Sunday morning and fifteen teams are working against the clock in the Nokia building in Copenhagen. They are all gunning for first prize tonight at the startup weekend. The Tech All Stars team is on site providing help and assistance in hosting this Startup Weekend event.
Sunday Morning Team
I’m a Startup Weekend veteran and I must say that this has been one of the more ‘unusual’ Startup Weekends. Maybe its because I am an organizer instead of a participant, but for this Startup Weekend, we are seeing many entrepreneurial students and mature career folks who are thinking of stepping off of the corporate path and starting something new. This creates a new and refreshing vibe for the Startup Weekend event. We Love It!
