And the award-winning startups of VUNK Garage48 2016 hackathon are…

VUNK Garage48 Hackathon 2016 kicked off in the awesome SpaceX grounds in Tallinn, Estonia on Friday where 32 brave new visionaries pitched their innovative ideas. By the end of the team formation session, 16 projects got teams together and were brought to life by the teams of product managers, developers, designers and marketeers. 16 great projects were presented in the final presentations where the jury needed to do tough decisions.

Instead of picking 7 teams for the next phase of VUNK Accelerator program Team Validation of confirming their business model and validating their teams, the jury picked 9 intriguing new startups. 
In addition the awards were given out for Best Tech Solution and Best Design. Prototron chose 2 teams to get straight to TOP40 into their Accelerator program and Ajujaht gave access to 1 team directly to TOP30 round. 

We had great mentors & jury working with the teams over the intensive week-end: Calum Cameron (Startup Wise Guys), Ragnar Sass (Garage48, Clanbeat), Ivo Remmelg (Telegrupp, Startup Wise Guys), Holger Haljand (Telia), Andre Visse (Telia), Elise Sass (Garage48), Henri-Paul Ariste (Telia), Ivo Kukavica (Telia Company), Kirke Saar (Telia), Lauris Muzikants (Telia Sweden), Martin Rand (VitalFields), Tiivi Püvi (IDEA Group), Mantas Gostautas (TEO & Omnitel), Priit Pikk (Telia).
