E-Boat hackathon

Grzegorz Papaj, 30 September 2019

Just a few days ago we had the pleasure to participate in the E-Boat startup accelerator, organized by EIT Health. Our role was to support startups in the process of developing new mobile applications for the healthcare area, with particular emphasis on universal design.

A week aboard a schooner Kapitan Borchardt, a seagoing cruise from Gdansk to Riga at over six Beaufort scale, twelve great teams, four experienced mentors, many unusual ideas, a bit of seasickness and a lot of fun but also hard work (both with sails and with code) ) made this event an amazing experience and a real adventure.

Hackaton not only resulted in the development of new applications in the area of health care, but also checked the characters of crew members and enabled building real friendships between participants.

It was a great time and an even greater experience.
