Second place was taken by DaBuddy. DaBuddy is a mobile app which helps you find people to do fun sports with instantly. It does that by connecting people interested in the same hobbies and activities. Our main purpose is to make people go outside instead of staying in front of the computer all day.


Third place was taken by Remo. They provide the simple and cheap device to control your AC…and not only.

We have also got another two awards. The special award and your choice – RailHostel. It’s literally a hostel in a train…or even easier: the hostel IS the train! You will be visiting Europe in the most inspiring way: travel by night so you can save time. On top of that you get to enjoy the time while going from point A to B in a comfortable and familiar hostel environment where you can have lots of fun. In the morning when you arrive at your destination and wish to continue your trip in the evening, you can leave all your stuff in the hostel and the train will be waiting for you.
