It all started with an idea – or maybe even a dream – more than a year ago. A dream of gathering 24 smart, crazy, curious and energetic people, and hack problems of the future. And like all other good dreams we began the adventure by buying the domain name Hacktober and never looked back. I’ll get back to the name later.
A few weeks and months passed by and we hadn’t done anything with the domain. We still haven’t. But what we decided to do after those month was to make a speedboat. A speedboat to experiment if the dream could come true.
It was about the same time Erik began one of his blog posts with: “You might have heard the term ‘speedboat’ when talking about innovation. These constructions are often seen as fast, fun, and flamboyant, with dedicated locations, lots of post-its and freedom, and a boheme-esque interior design.” We have experimented with a lot of small speedboats, but never a bigger one involving 24 people.
