Apple, Copenhagen Fintech, Founders House, IBM CIC, Købmagergade 22, KPMG, Pleo, PwC, Queue-it, Symbion and UserTribe took part of Startup Cup 2020 and UserTribe and Queue-it proved to be the best in their groups and thus met in the final. A thrilling game seeing the 2019 winners UserTribe come back from behind twice to win 3-2.
A fantastic final and team Queue-it from The Camp really did the company proud. Especially Mojtaba Sarooghi impressed as the Senior Software Engineer turned into an absolute beast on goal. A warrior with a YOU-SHALL-NOT-PASS attitude that gave his team the courage to take on everyone.
In the end even Mojtaba “The Rock” Sarooghi couldn’t do anything as Team UserTribe once again proved unstoppable. A strong squad with few weaknesses picked up the 2020 trophy and it will take something extra to beat them for the 2021 edition. David Sander was the captain lifting the trophy.
Copenhagen Fintech and Pleo each finished second in their group and in the battle for third place the young Copenhagen Fintech team secured a win. In the battle of redemption Købmagergade 22 secured their first and only won again Founders House.
Mojtaba “The Rock” Sarooghi from Queue-it was a contender for player of the tournament together with Simon Skøt from Pleo and Thomas Johnsen from Founders House. All three keepers has the Startup Cup spirit where you do everything to help your team. Simon Skøtt only got to play one game as he became injured during the final seconds of Pleo’s first game. In a fantastic save he put the team before himself and as he sacrificed himself for team Pleo he pulled a nasty hamstring injury that kept him out the rest of the tournament.
It wasn’t much better for Thomas Johnsen from Founders House. The International Partnership manager from WannaSport got injured in the second game, but as Founders House did not have many players for the tournament he played the rest of the games in goal. Including the battle of redemption that Founders House also lost. The brave team did not leave Startup Cup empty handed though… Captain Thomas Johnsen picked up the award for player of the tournament!
