The weekend hackathon in Riga kicked off yesterday with a room buzzing with ideas. This time we joined forces with the very fresh Latvian hackathon brand Startup Slalom to hack sharing economy ideas in 48 hours. There were 77 participants out of whom 25 were brave enough to take the stage and introduce their idea in 90 seconds. After the team formation - a live marketplace to find your needed team members - 10 projects were submitted to the hackathon.
