Startup Weekend Glasgow: The Results

May 28, 2012
By Michael Hayes

The first ever Scottish Startup Weekend took place in Glasgow on the 25-27th May 2012. The challenge was for entrepreneurs, designers and developers to build and launch a tech startup in just 54 hours.

Starting on the Friday evening 24 people pitched their ideas and after frantic voting, 11 ideas were selected for the weekend. All the attendees then adopted themselves into a team and started trying to ignore the rarely seen Scottish sunny weather to get developing.

The 11 teams were:

After the final pitches the winners were VegPin, SportHack, X-Tribe, Appurchase, Gifty and PostPod with the main prize going to the PostPod team as the business ‘Most likely to make a million’.

There were so many brilliant ideas and it was great how the teams of strangers gelled together to work long hours and build something from nothing. Huge congratulations to everyone.
