From the Hackathon
to Team Validation to our Accelerator three teams stood out the strongest. So
this year's TOP 3 are: ByteSight, CADirect and HypeSilo! Big cheer goes out
also to the five teams that were with us in the Team Validation: MovePrep, Nimi,
Skynda, TipOff, HolmeCare - keep up the work and see you soon!
So what were the
criteria to pick the TOP? First and foremost we looked at the team - are they
willing to go the extra mile and validate their business. Secondly, this
4-weeks period is the best opportunity to set your business focus and learn how
to scale it. And thirdly, would
it make sense for the startup and Telia to work together.
So now we are in the
beginning of our third week of the accelerator and on November 16th you'll have
a chance to see the teams and witness progress yourself coming to our VUNK DemoDay > sign up
