CO-nect wins – Best Innovation Award HackCorona!

The CO-nect team has participated in the HackCorona hackathon. A few days of exceptionally hard work making a very tight deadline. All-in the course of putting a stop to the Corona virus. We are always in for a challenge and considering the fact that our parter Bubl, being privacy ambassadors who striving to restore ownership of your online data back to you, was asking, we were easily convinced to join as quickly as possible.

THE QUESTION TO SOLVE: DEVELOP A TRACEBACK-APPLICATION TO GO ‘VIRAL’, STIMULATING DESIRED BEHAVIOUR IN A PRIVACY SECURE FASHION

After a weekend of brainstorming, the concept was broadly committed to paper: An application on a safe platform using ‘serious gaming’ techniques to anonymously share information, influence behavior and spread the app itself, in an effort to stop Corona in its tracks. Yeah!
Off to convince the jury! But how do you present and visualize such an idea? To tackle this, developers and the commercial team got together to make tings as tangible as possible: logo, name, brand style, all needed to be developed. But also a scenario for the voice-over, animations and montage into a pitch video.

Off to the country final and making this app a reality! #team29

It was hard work! Incredible what can be delivered within a day and a half! The positive energy of performing as a team and to satisfy the trust placed in us by team #29 let us rise above ourselves. Such a great feeling to be contributing to this fight against Corona, which is
so desperately in need of a safe and anonymized environment to collect and share the data needed to win. A platform that is actually fun to use, thanks tot he gamification! We reached the country finals of Dutch Hacking Health!

This is only the beginning: Onwards, to find the optimal execution path!
