Startup Weekend Timisoara #5 started on Friday evening with 16 pitches. All the participants went through organized chaos and figured out that they should be working together within 7 legendary teams: Thumb wars, Money, Trainerz.co, Fitzilla, Movie lingua & Smart ticket. Find them on f6s.com.

We’re all about learning at Startup Weekend and we hope that together we managed to grow. We had two workshops on Saturday that helped increase the know-how level with one talking about Business Model Canvas and the other one making sure your pitch will be out of this world.

On Sunday, the pressure started to appear whilst teams were getting ready for the final presentations. They had only 5 minutes to present how their product was validated, how they built an MVP and how they will be making money. The judges were ready, and the teams delivered their pitches with style.

At the end it all came down to figuring out how did the teams perform in relation with one-another. And thus the judges deliberated [drum roll]

Fitzilla – 3rd place

Movie lingua – 2nd place

.. and the winner of SWTimisoara #5 is…. Smart ticket!

We’re here to support all of the teams in their endeavour and to push them forward into working on their projects, learning and then pivoting some more. Make sure you join our Facebook group in order to be able to reach to anybody within the community.

We’re working on uploading all of the media files from the event and we’re really happy that our viewers were able to be present via on-line streaming. You can already find pictures on SWTimisoara Facebook page, Friday pitches on the Youtube channel here.

Stay tuned for more!
