Accelerator - Startup Weekend Style Assignments, Week 13
The Agile Zone is brought to you in partnership with JetBrains. Learn how Agile Boards in YouTrack are designed to help teams plan, visualize and manage their work in an efficient manner, with support for both Scrum and Kanban processes.
We have just completed the final week of AccleratorHK, the hardest week of them all. Last week was the week where the teams had to run their businesses, review and sign all of the investment paperwork from Telerik, and prep for Demo Day!
For prepping, we have two mentors come in this week and work with the teams. In addition we had three members of the past cohort come in and work on the presentations. Finally we had our last Friday check-in where I got to weigh in for probably the last time on the presentations. All in all, that was at least six practice runs with structured feedback. The teams are ready for Tuesday.
Later in the week we had the Demo Day film team arrive and Gerard filmed each team’s interview. These interviews will be used by each team as they leave AcceleratorHK and take their businesses to the next level.
Lastly, we had Charlie Sheng from TechNode some in and interview all six teams for two stories, one that will be a write-up for startupshk and one for a story about Demo Day, AcceleratorHK, and the startup ecosystem for TechNode. Stay tuned…
