This year’s Hack Battle was all about IoT and attendees didn’t fail to impress with their creative hacks. And with a grand prize awarded to the most impressive product, the 36 hour battle was rife with competition.
Instead, Fokke wants us to transfer the money directly to Compassion – a charity supporting children in poverty.
Additionally, this June Fokke will cycle 400km through Rwanda and is currently looking for sponsors to gift to the local community.
In his own words:
Since I joined to play rather than win, I have decided to donate the €2,000 to Compassion. This Friday I will travel to Rwanda to see how they provide education and care to over 80,000 children.
