Stay Inspired: 10 Startup Weekend Success Stories

Out of hundreds of Startup Weekend events, many teams stay together after the event to keep building. Ultimately, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place doesn’t matter. Execution is what separates the great ideas from the great teams.

But the real and near-impossible-to-measure success is how many Startup Weekend alumni go on to launch a new company months later with someone they met at a Startup Weekend. Or otherwise get involved in a startup as a founder or equity-owning employee after Startup Weekend equipped them with the education or the confidence they needed to take the leap.

One thing is for sure: everyone wins at a Startup Weekend. Meet 10 companies launched in 54 hours and seen success in the marketplace.
