UX Passion's Wall of Tweets was voted best new venture by the audience and jury in this year's StartUpOpen competition.
BlogOpen is a non-profit project supporting the growth of a vibrant digital culture in south east Europe. As a part of the annual BlogOpen conference, a competition, StartUpOpen, seeks to identify and reward the most promising new digital enterprises in the region.
At this year’s finals, held in Novi Sad, Serbia on 8 October 2011, the six finalists were: Mobni.net, Mrkva, Quick Fix, VolimRadio.rs, Wall Wave and UX Passion’s Wall of Tweets.
Each team had 10 minutes for their pitch and presentation in front of the jury and audience. We are proud to report that our Wall of Tweets project won most votes both from the jury and the audience.
Vibor Cipan, our CEO said in his award acceptance speech:
This is our first competition of this kind ever and it’s a really wonderful feeling to be able to share our passion for designing and delivering terrific experiences on all platforms and thrilling our customers with our work. This can only serve as an additional motivation to us to keep innovating and delivering value to our users. Of course, winning is nice as well, especially when you are competing with so many other talented teams from the entire region.
Wall of Tweets has been invited to present in front of business angel associations in the region and will also be a part of StartUpOpen DemoDay, which is to be held in Belgrade.
