Assessed as having market potential, the three best teams steal the attention of the jury at the National 1000 Startup Movement Hacksprint Malang

Malang, March 20, 2017 – The National 1000 Startup Digital Malang Movement has reached the stage Hacksprint which was held at the A3 Hall Building, State University of Malang on March 18-19 2017 yesterday. For two days, 22 teams were required to make prototypes of the startup ideas they developed into a company prototype with a mature business model using the method design sprints.

Hacksprint is an advanced stage after phase Ignition and Workshop from the National 1000 Startup Digital Movement program series with Acer as the official technology partner. Method Hacksprint is a new generation of hackathon which is packaged more structured and directed by using the design sprints. In this phase, each team of 3-5 people will create a prototype of the product they want to create.

“Overall, I really like the enthusiasm of the participants of the National 1000 Startup Digital Malang Movement. Malang is still in the stage of building a startup ecosystem, but the enthusiasm of the startups there can be seen from their enthusiasm for participating in the 1000 Digital Startup National Movement,” he said.

said Fadli Wilihandarwo, CEO of Patientia, Sprint Master Hacksprint in Malang.

The various ideas which were considered quite unique by the jury did not necessarily make the participants proud. The mentors continue to force all teams to continue to validate their products. “Are the products made really a solution for many people or are they just answering their own (participant) problems,” explained Sandy Colondam, Co-founder of Picmix, at the judging. Besides Sandy, this time the Hacksprint jury included Leonika Sari (CEO of Reblood), Arianti Silvia (Senior Designer, PT Kreatif Media Karya), and Gatot Wahyu Widharto (Business Development, PT Beon Intermedia).
