Sunday was full of excitement, polishing the ideas and final touches on the presentations. At 5pm, participants, visitors, coaches and judges were ready for the highlight of the weekend: final pitches!
We had 9 amazing pitches which gave the jury a hard time to decide at the end.
The final decision by jury came as follows:
The overall winner is Talinx. The platform aims that talents can create their dream job and reversing the recruiting process. The idea is that the potential employee posts the job definition and the potential employer applies to the candidate.
Cook Next Door was selected for the best prototype prize. They aim to connect the eaters and the cooks for a homemade take away.
The best pitch award goes to Together Panda. Their platform connects team assistants, HR professionals, team leaders and other interested people to agencies, venues, NGOs and individuals that provide team events.
Last but not least, Blogradio is chosen the “sexiest presentation”. Their idea is to bring the blogs to your ears. They enable listening the blogs when the followers do not have time to read or prefer to listen it on their way back home in the car.
This was Startup Weekend Zurich Spring Edition 2015. Thanks a lot everyone for your great attendance and congratulations to our winners!
See you at the next edition: Startup Weekend Zurich 2015 – Autumn!

Our facilitar Kathrine, who arrived from Norway last night, took the stage and started the first game: High-five with the people around whenever you see the blinking sheep on the screen!
After the introduction, our speaker Pascal Mathis, industry manager at Google and co-founder of GetYourGuide, gave his insightful presentation on “Small ideas can win big things”.
