‚Are you ready to rrrrrummmmmble??’

Lasse Chor is on the microphone, beaming, eyes wide open while the upper floor of the Hafen University in Hamburg is literally boiling! What we just witness isn’t the boxing fight of Klitschko vs. Chagaev. It’s final Pitch of Startup Weekend Hamburg 2012. 54 hours have passed and 15 Teams made their way through all troubles of becoming entrepreneurs while founding their own businesses. In legal questions or marketing issues the teams were supported by business-approved mentors all through the weekend. They ran through numerous stages of problem settings, had to rearrange and rethink their concepts and business plans many times. Now it’s their turn to present their startups to a jury consisting of VCs and legal and financial consultants who witnessed quite a few entrepreneural dreams.
