Garage48 Lviv 2015 winner makes magic with messages!

This weekend Garage48 together with the Estonian Development Cooperation brought together 65 participants and 7 mentors to create something special. Not only that we wanted to disrupt different areas and innovate the way of thinking, we wanted to introduce the word "hackathon" in a new light. Because a hackathon doesn't always have to mean hackers coming together to generate codes  - sometimes it's about the new vibe, the emotions, the intensity and the motivation. After the 48 hours, 240 cans of Red Bull and 2 sleepless nights later, 12 teams managed to show some kick-ass prototypes on Sunday evening.

 By the way, we wouldn't have managed to do it all without our great friends and partners: N-iX HQ Development center, Microsoft, Transferwise, Startup Depot, GrowthUP Accelerator, Lviv Business School, Franko National University of Lviv, Startup Line, Lviv IT School & DOU.ua.

The jury members of Garage48 Lviv 2015 event were the representatives of different companies and organizations: Ragnar Sass (Pipedrive&Garage48), Tiit Paananen (Pipedrive), Viktor Tsykunov (Microsoft), Maksym Bryzhko (Transferwise), Veiko Jääger (Fraktal), Vladyslav Chornobay (Transferwise), Andrew Pavliv (N-iX), Nikolay Pavliv (GrowthUP Business Accelerator), Khrystyna Boyko (StartupDepot)
