Day 2 - Update 2 - Building the Startups

There is a fever pitch feeling in the main room as the teams work together to get there projects built, developed and tweaked. The scrum for power plugs, a major problem even at Google HQ, continues.

The 14 teams each working now with mentors, getting the expertise that made them the success in tech, being passed on to the teams for the future of these startups.

Benoit Curdy, the Start Weekend Dublin organiser explains ' having mentors is difficult, you need to look for certain skillsets, but you have to be careful not to have too many, its a fine line.'

The focus now is for the teams to take their ideas and get them into something that they can develop into a future startup.
