Northbound Startups HackWeek introduced the concept for pre-accelerator

We were testing a new concept of coaching founders in the third NBS hackathon. Instead of 24 hour uninterrupted hacking the event was spread to four consecutive days with solid themes each day. Six teams from four different countries were ready to defend their ideas of Tech me Together. Seldom have the hackathon teams had that many workshops and expert mentoring during the event. Anyway, being hackathon it all ends in presenting your idea. The jury saw several good pitches and found the idea of student co-working app from Roomie the most viable.

Congrats Gula Gozalov from Roomie and thanks for all the teams; JUT, Zumud, Roundtably, Lucia and Snowrem. Thank you Sofokus for arranging the Hackweek and especially Turo Numminen, Milla Heikkilä and Suvi Hyrsky for the workshops. See you Gula in the SHIFT Business Festival!
