And the winner of the Best Hardware Startup portion of the event is Polish Estimote (@estimote), founded in Krakow by Jakub Krzych (@jimiasty) and Łukasz Kostka (@ljdk).

  1. Nice post. I be taught one thing more difficult on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to learn content material from different writers and follow somewhat one thing from their store. I’d favor to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a hyperlink in your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
