It’s always hard to determine metrics on which to measure success when we’re present at a hackathon. If people talk to us, take our t-shirts and stickers, sign up for developer accounts and hack on our API, that makes us feel pretty good. Those things happened last weekend at AngelHack, but that was just the beginning.
After 24 hours of hacking, our platform had more than 100 new developers accounts and 15 of the submitted apps had used Singly. When the sponsor judges narrowed the field to 20 apps – five of them were Singly-empowered.
Then, the VC judges announced six teams that will continue on to the finals in July. Two of those teams used Singly, including the overall winner of the Silicon Valley event. The winning team, GiveGo, used Singly to create a platform for micro-fundraising through personal fitness:
We were flattered and humbled by the wide array of ideas people put forth using Singly – from a charity micro-fundraiser to a video chat solution to a really smart file transfer app – and we felt truly validated in our pursuit.
We would like to extent thanks to Greg at AngelHack, all of our co-sponsors and, most importantly, the developers and designers who made this event so fantastic.
Here’s the GiveGo team finding out they won:
