What do YOU get from VUNK?

The reasons why someone would come to disrupt telco and spend a weekend full of developing, pitching, and fun and stress can be different from one person to another but here are some...


Last year showed that the participants and teams who got through to Team Validation (the next phase after Hackathon) appreciated the feedback and coaching from our MENTORS the most. So this year we’ve taken it to the next level. We have included strong mentors covering Business, Tech, Investments and Just-Getting-Started, and we also have two Telia Company mentors joining who have been there for the investment decisions to startups and internal teams. We also cover Branding and Marketing and will soon announce a Design mentor so you’ll get the total package to kick off your business. And last but not least, the mentors will not only be there during the Hackathon but will also help teams during the Team Validation and Accelerator phase!

Next up is MARKET ACCESS. If you get to the finals or if you team proves to be really keen on offering value for Telia in Estonia or elsewhere, we'll put you in touch with our product teams to plan the future business launches together. So be sure to think what the value offer for Telia is, as you might get free access to a very large audience!

Integration with our APIs - if this acronym is new for you, then in short it stands for a set of functions and procedures that allow the creation of applications which access the features or data of an operating system, application, or other service. To sum up, we have opened 7 APIs for you to build your business upon. See what they are.

Equity-free FUNDING. At first it might seem as the most important aspect and it sure is because you get a slice of € 30K and who wouldn’t like that, especially after all the effort! Nevertheless, before that comes the PROGRAM itself. Thanks to the feedback from our #VunkAlumni15 it's going to be even more valuable than before. We have once again partnered up with the best on the market - Garage48 will help us run the pre-events and Hackathon and Startup Wise Guys will create the content for the Team Validation and Acceleration part, plus our mentors from inside the company and outside!

Ah, and yes! There will be surprise awards given out at the end of the Hackathon, so perhaps you now found some motivation to really quickly CLICK HERE & sign up!

#GetVunked16 - it's going to be awesome with the best people in town!
