Congratulations to MIMIX, winner of Global Startup Battle: Face-Off and Ultimate Champion of Global Startup Battle 2010!

All of us at Startup Weekend extend a huge round of applause to the entire MIMIX team for a job well done!  Congratulations to Pierre Daher, Jessica Abou Haydar, Pascale Baaklini, Akram Barakat, and founder Mahmoud Darawaheh.  As the Ultimate Champion, the MIMIX team wins a website by Clover and a customized video by SwitchMarketing!  These prizes, in addition to those the team received as Week 1 winners, will help catapult MIMIX to the next level of entrepreneurial success.

MIMIX is a web and mobile app which builds on speech recognition and 3D modeling technologies to translate speech into sign language in real-time.  The team and their startup have huge potential and we are certain that the winners of Global Startup Battle will have many more successes in their future.

We would also like to thank all of the teams that participated in Global Startup Battle.  The Battle wouldn’t have been possible without your innovation, hard work, and enthusiasm.  We wish you all the best of luck with your startups and urge you to keep us updated with your future triumphs by contacting us at success@startupweekend.org

Many thanks, too, to all of the fans, sponsors, event participants, mentors, judges, and supporters who made each one of our Global Entrepreneurship Week Startup Weekends a success.  Startup Weekend relies on our network of amazing volunteers and startup junkies and we are grateful and constantly surprised by your enthusiasm and love of all things startup.  Lastly, Startup Weekend would like to thank the Kauffman Foundation for their help and support.
