AngelHack descended on London recently in what has been described as the best hackathon to be held in the city ever. Pictures courtesy of Greg Gopman.
They maxed out Bloomberg’s internet capacity, broke the WiFi, broke power strips and demolished every morsel of food that came into the building.
The scale of AngelHack London was impressive: over 300 attendees came together to express their mutual love of digital linguistics. Eighty per cent of attendees were developers.
Nerf guns and helicopter wars kept the intrepid hackers up for 36 hours as they battled to create viable products to a tight deadline.
Three teams of top coders came out on top. AngelHack will provide them with eight weeks of mentorship from London angel investors.
AngelHack will also fly the teams from London to AngelHack’s Global Demo Day in Silicon Valley. Over $700,000 in funding an prizes will be given out at the final.
The three winners were Penny, an app that tells you when products you want are discounted, Testlio, a community of testers that help companies make sure their products work, and Bank Positive, the world’s first bank for children.
