Community Builder Met at Techcrunch Disrupt !
Volunteering at Techcrunch Disrupt was really a source of inspiration and it gave us a lot of idea to make iWeekend event better! First is the design of beautiful badges! We will keep each person’s badge for our different iWeekend events (monthly meetups..) so that participants who often come back can find their badge again. It always feel good when you join an event and people recognize you!
TC Disrupt was also the occasion to get to know closer the Startup Weekend Beijing team. Andy Mok, founder of Startup Weekend Beijing was also co-organizer of the Hackathon. Many volunteer of Startup Weekend was also volunteer at TC Disrupt: Lilly, Duncan, Eric, Kevin (also iWeekend participant!) to name just a few and it was lot of fun to work with all of them!
But the Hackathon was particularly the occasion for several iWeekenders to get back together and get news from each other. Tyr Chen And Alex Su were there with the Tukeq team (previous Toureet project, accelerated at iWeekend Beijing 2). It was very exciting to meet their intrepid team and see the progress they make within only 6 months! Other iWeekend alumni who were there included Mike, Nick, Mattews, Nicky all form iWeekend Beijing #1. They all continue on their entrepreneur road and got more experience.
Beijing tech community is just starting to build its foundation. We have no doubt that people you meet today at any community events will be the Chinese Zuckenberg and Jobs of tomorrow! If you are not part of the community yet, join us next week Nov 18-19! We are looking forward to meet you and your dream!
