Proud sponsor of Stockholm Startup Hack

I am really happy to announce that I am sponsoring Stockholm Startup Hack with a really cool venue for Saturday's hack! The previous venue was amazing too but since more than a hundred people applied, the hack really needed a bigger venue.

So... I'm super happy to sponsor the hack with "Lägenheten". It's a huge, charming, Berlin-style apartment right by Mariatorget. I have such a great feeling for this place. I'm thinking it might be the mother of all hacker-venues.

Haven't heard about Stockholm Startup Hack? Well, you should have. It's a full day event taking place tomorrow (Saturday 12/5 2012). Participants in teams of one to three will get 12 hours to create something amazing, using their hacking skills alone. The event itself is a real grass roots hacker initiative, co-organized by three great individuals; Martina of Tripbirds, Jocke of Wrapp and Javve of Mynewsdesk. A bunch of other startups are sponsoring with things like snacks (iZettle) breakfast (TicTail) and venue (um, me)!

Here is the schedule:
  • 08.00 Breakfast
  • 08.45 Welcome and hello
  • 09.00 Hack begins
  • 12.00 Lunch
  • 18.00 Dinner
  • 21.00 Hack ends
  • 21.15 Presentations – each team gets 90 seconds to pitch and show their hack.
  • 23:00 Let’s head out!
If you are participating, please bring:

I had no idea, but with so many hackers in one place the actual Wi-Fi frequency band might get clogged up. The solution is to A) use a network cable to one of the 4G modems or B) use your phone's 3G connection with a cable. Got it?

If you are a journalist or have some other purpose to hang around, contact Martina Elm for press  accreditation. :)

If you think this sounds amazing, you should totally apply fo 24 Hour Business Camp, 10-12 June at Hasseludden Yasuragi. The last day to apply to 24hbc is TODAY. (friday 11/5).

Ett av Schibsteds snabbast växande bolag, Lendo, söker utvecklare. Finders fee!

Haha Kareen - jag föreslår att Schibsted sponsrar nästa Startup Hack. :)

Kanske Schibsted som sponsrar lokalen nästa gång, ska vi säga det?
