Sunday afternoon, as the pitch competition drew near, the five Startup Weekend Athens teams hustled to get their pitches into shape.

The teams tweaked and finalized and practiced their 5-minute pitches for the Sunday afternoon finale. Business and technology expert judges were ready to rate the teams’ pitches and business prospects. Prizes for the top three pitches included business books, marketing assistance, and technical services to help the winning teams further develop their businesses.

Team Tieboost changed its focus during the weekend, developing the concept for a web service to provide a voice and visibility for unknown talent.
