JURYS COMMENTS

Jury member Lauri Toomsalu (EMT) said: "Jury decision were not easy, because our jury had many members from different countries and backgrounds. All those 12 teams were very good and their presentations were outstanding. We admired their potential to become successful in the local and international market. Lots of them were done in 48 hours and were very good. Decisions are made and we are happy that so many powerful teams participated in Garage48 event." Lauri Toomsalu added: "The main reason why EMT participated is that EMT wants people to use their mobile phones and services more then ever. Mobile apps are the fast growing part of mobile services market and there is the biggest potential of growth and revenue. EMT is providing the best devices and best services to use mobile applications and it has been a great honour to support Garage48 EMT Appmillionaire Camp this autumn in Tallinn." 

Mentor Karsten Vandrup said: "The winning team was extremely focused, they were passionate about what they did and in the business potential is there without too high ambitions. Good implementations, good design and overall good teamwork. But in general I find that teams had high quality and ideas were very good. Not everybody was eagerly focusing on the business potential and that is also OK. Obviously we pick the winners because of the business potential which is a little unfair to the little funny ideas that always make such events great. Team like Smack the Politician did not get any award, but they did a very good job."
