The whole Startup Weekend experience was spectacular, as the knowledge and experience I gained within the 54 hours were mind blowing. In addition, Startup Weekend made it possible for me to meet a vast diversity of people and to learn from mentors who are sharing their experiences with us. I believe this event has paved the way for all of us, in terms of starting up a business. Thank you Startup Weekend.

The Startup Weekend Dubai was such an amazing experience for me where I have learned a lot in these 54 hours from both technology and business perspectives. It was both fun and productive. Being able to merge your passion with a business model creates all the positive hype you need to go forward. Bringing in the startup culture to Dubai is exactly what we need to inspire people to become great entrepreneurs and develop the economy in the region.

The Startup Weekend experience is pivotal to give people an understanding of how the world of entrepreneurship is moving. It gives you the tools and platform to turn ideas into reality. My team and I were very excited and honored to receive the 2nd place award, and we’re using both the momentum and the prize money to move our idea into a real business.
