Health Hackathon 2015

After March's Fintech event that produced a record breaking range of amazing submissions the HackJsy team decided to host another in September, which took place this weekend. The 38 hour event looked for solutions based on all aspects of Digital health, wellness and sports, judged by a panel of industry experts with a range of prizes for winning submissions.
