Impact and Hack the Crisis startups to watch

Back to News

We have fully kicked off our brand new Impact aka Hack the Crisis online pre-accelerator with 28 teams working on various solutions to tackle immediate and longterm Corona crisis challenges, as well as additional teams working in the impact direction. Majority of teams are selected winners of local Hack the Crisis hackathons working on remote work, education, healthcare, delivery and other sectors. However, to spice things up, we have also onboarded teams from recent (and Corona crisis inspired) SexHack – so no surprises to see some exciting startups in production at the bottom of our list. The applications still keep coming in and rumour has it we might launch a second program soon enough (for those reading this and being curios – check our Hack the Crisis page and get on waiting list).

Without further ado – here’s the full list of the teams that have gotten in!
