We got the chance to get our project of social apps plan A selected to be part of the 2015 hackamena. 72h of non stop geeking in order to make an idea come true. The main focus of this event was the social impact of our project.
We got the chance to get a team of 3 to 4 people working with us on this idea. Our main focus was to provide a new solution to allow people to fight one of the modern society major issue: loneliness.
Apart of tackling this issue we focused into giving it a social twist.
The global experience of this hackathon was very positive. The team in charge of the organization did a very good job. Everything was made to allow participants to get the best of this event.
From our side I think the most valuable part was to get the chance to exchange with real geek and entrepreneurs on specific thematic. We came back with fresh ideas, feedbacks and a stronger motivation to make our project succeed.
