FilmSkout wins Startup Weekend Hong Kong 2012

After a long but joyfulness Startup Weekend in Hong Kong (the November edition) all anticipation became to an end when the winner was announced: FilmSkout.

FilmSkout is a web based service that allows filmmakers and photographers to scout for locations online.

During the weekend they pivoted, changed the startup idea and did a 360 pirouette to eventually come back to their original idea. As a mentor for the weekend I saw it all happen in just a few weekend hours.

I visited them more then once this weekend, they were actually the very first team to call me in on Saturday, I loved working with them. We also had a joined session with accidental mentor Salim Virani ‏(@SaintSal) creator of @Leancamp

The Startup Weekend judges feedback was convincing service, potential and business model.

The FilmSkout team, names and numbers will be added later to this post.

Co-Founder Kenneth Law, Co-founder Bart Verkoeijen and other team members.

I will definitely be following them arround!
