Over 20 startups later & so goes Startup Weekend San Francisco

Last night the San Francisco tech community gathered at the Microsoft offices to conclude the 55 hour marathon that has become known as Startup Weekend. It all started on Friday night and when it was all said and done, over 20 groups had created startups and present it to the group. The video above (and can be found here) is a recap of those presentations – lasting just slightly over 2 hrs 30 min.

After my first Startup Weekend, I had heard the pitches and was impressed that they were somewhat vetted by established venture capitalists and the awesome persistence and dedication these teams had towards their products. By the end of the night, the groups presented all sorts of ideas from finding the nearest establishment serving your favorite beer to managing your finances to setting up a new way to combat crime in neighborhoods.

Will these startups continue post-weekend? Who knows, but watch out as some of these may be at your next conference showroom or event demoing their product. You’ll just have to remember that it started right here at Startup Weekend in San Francisco.

    A few of the teams are still going and trying to be serious about continuing. Mine is one – http://gosnoozemail.com – we just had our first official team dinner last night and are meeting again this weekend. And that's just for the important in-person stuff – the developers are checking in stuff via svn like mad, while the designer and business guy have been going to town on Basecamp.

    @Al Abut – that's great the teams that formed at Startup Weekend are still moving forward. From what I saw this past weekend, I hope that some do make it out of the gate and become successful because there are several that I'd probably use personally. Good luck to you & your team!
