The first stage of the battle ends…


…and it was a fight to the finish!

Thanks to all the participants who made it such an interesting and fun event; it was great to see everyone generate so much energy around their startups, which led to the tight finish.

Without further ado, we’re very pleased to announce the selected teams:

Yes, you counted correctly, there are 13 teams selected ! Due to some confusion regarding vote acquisition, we decided to be as fair to all participants as possible, which meant that the vote rankings were grouped around the top 13 rather than the top 10, as we’d originally thought.

For the teams that did not end up in the top 13, thank you so much for the efforts you put into mobilizing your fans/supporters to vote for you. We truly believe that you are going to climb mountains very soon!

Obviously, Europe Startup Weekend Battle is a community-building event. If any of the teams who did not make it to the top 13 feel like attending anyway, contact us so we can make arrangements. (Please be aware that in this case, you participate for fun, to support the SW community, and to develop your network–not to pitch in front of the investors).

A huge congratulations to the teams that were selected for Europe Startup Weekend Battle  and a hearty round of applause for all the contenders!
