Triangle Startup Weekend Recap

Durham, NC – Triangle Startup Weekend (TSW) was a rousing success. Over 250 designers, developers, entrepreneurs and investors packed the new co-working space in Durham, American Underground at Main.

The 54 hour event started with 56 pitches and ended with 14 teams presenting the projects that they had worked on tirelessly. Lots of great ideas were developed but as always only a few made it to the top of the judging criteria.

A description of the 14 final team pitches are listed in the TSW Blog.

Coursefork™, the winner of the March 2013 Triangle Startup Weekend gave a great presentation about their progress in the 4 months since they won the last TSW.

Congratulations to all the teams! TSW was a great place to network, so make sure you plan on attending the next Startup Weekend in your area.
