Startup Weekend

In the year of 2016 I participated at the Startup Weekend in Hamburg. In a three-headed team we conceptualized a business idea for an application called BlockStock. The application allows a simple creation of algorithms for automated trading on the principle of building blocks. All started on Friday evening and discussed the general idea. On Saturday we did a small market analysis and classified the competitors. Different mentors gave us useful tips. The entire Business Model Canvas was created piece by piece and a small prototype was implemented. At the end of the weekend we took part on the final pitch on Sunday evening.
