TripHack is working on creating a social network where people can document their travels and share them with their personal networks, which in turn helps other people plan their trips according to the detailed data they receive from the platform.
Team Sleeping with Matt
Sleeping with Matt is working on smart sleepwear and an accompanying app, which will help users track data and get feedback about their sleeping habits, sleep quality etc.
Viiekas aims to create a web app which will bring together product and services providers with language editors who will help to better define the client's message for clarity and ensure that it is grammatically correct.
Team Singing Mural
