Did you hear about Teentrepreneur? It’s about time!

17 brave, crazy Pirates gathered in Cluj-Napoca, at Startup Pirates @ Cluj-Napoca, an intense and really productive week, 8 days in total!

On the first day, after the teambuilding, we  already had 7 groups, with 7 business ideas, they worked more than 90 hours during the week, consuming about 7 kg of coffee! Now that is a lot, Robbert Visser, the main organizer of the program (RubyTribe & Cluj Cowork) observed, that this amount was the biggest amount consumed in one week in that office until now!

After 17 entrepreneurs and mentors helped our Pirates to develop their business idea through trainings about customer validation, product development, marketing and gamification, and the Pirates had the chance to present their pitches in the front of the jury on the last day, 15th of February.

After this long week, the jury decided, that the winning team should be the idea an online financial educational game mainly for high school students, the Teentrepreneur!

2nd place went to the Wipe: the team developed glasses, that assist the visually impaired people, which uses sound and vibration signals to help it’s user getting around easier.

3rd place: team Evolso, a mobile application, which – by making a check in, helps us getting to know people who are in the same place as we are.

We said: Go Pirates!
