Our recent, successfully accomplished Hackathon activity among the lineup of Plexonic Team inspired us to become a part of another great Hackathon event organized in  Hero City at Draper University.

Together with #Unity, #SpriteBuilder and others we shared the creative energy of the hacking marathon and made our sponsorship investment in it as we considerinnovation as a high priority!

Thrilled to know the results?! Here are the trio of winners who showed the best recipe for Draper’s Hackathon after the 12 hours of intense and tough competition:

FIRST PLACE

And soon you will be a homeless Hero.
