Day 1 gave us a LOT of energy, 26 pitches, 2 great keynote speeches, and a lot of people excited to be here! After the pitches were done, it was voting time! About 12 teams were formed on ideas ranging from aggregated travel information, to emotion intelligence for kids, fashion and more than a few people giving their go at the education field. The majority of the teams started working right away to give their idea a kickstart, while some stayed until 3:00 in the morning.
The Despark office proved to be a good hangout for the hardcore startuppers. The place was packed! At around 3:00 AM the latest guests left to a power nap before showing up for breakfast at 9:00 AM and getting started on their projects.
