MassHack 2014, sponsored by Q Factor, the company committed to Making Mobile Better™, came to a close last weekend, bringing with it, more than 14 innovative new creations from 120 of the nation’s best and brightest developers and entrepreneurs.
Held June 13-15, MassHack’s inaugural event gave teams 48 hours to develop an application in the areas of HealthTech, EdTech or Internet-based services, before presenting their creations to judging panels comprised of top investors, industry experts and technology analysts from across the United States.
Winners of this year’s MassHack included:
- Turf.ly - a social fitness game for iPhone that allows users to “capture territory” by walking or running. The game encourages users to “compete with friends, gain points, and capture new turf!” Those interested in learning more about Turf.ly can visit http://turf.ly/ for an invitation to the application’s beta test.
- Spirit Guide – a WebRTC application that enables customers to guide their visitors through a more enjoyable user experience.
- Viemate - a Web app that helps young adults find roommates based on lifestyle compatibility. Young adults aged 20-34 who reside in the city, live fluid, fast-paced lifestyles, and finding roommates with whom they get along can be nearly impossible. For those young people looking to fill a room, or looking for a room themselves, Viemate is the solution. Viemate matches potential roommates and collects a percent of the transaction. http://viemate.com
“We were blown away by the level of creative genius that showed up for this year’s event and are so grateful to our sponsor Q Factor, the participants and the judges who all invested their time and expertise to this remarkable exercise in innovation,” said James Jones, MassHack founder and Telix Network cofounder. “This inaugural event showed us the caliber of what’s possible when the nation’s finest minds compete, and we can’t wait to see what the next MassHack will bring.”
MassHack is already planning its next event, expected to take place in the fall of 2014. For more information about MassHack or to keep tabs on the next MassHack, visit http://masshack.com/

About Q Factor
Q Factor radically improves user experiences over today’s increasingly congested wireless networks by streamlining the distribution of content. As the world becomes more unwired, users still expect their browsing or viewing experiences on any device, in any location, to be consistent, uninterrupted and high quality. For this to happen, a lot of complex data needs to make its way through the air to each device. Pieces of that data, or packets, often get lost or delayed, degrading quality and frustrating users. Q Factor’s powerful technology fixes that problem and ensures users get what they want, when then want it, with no interruptions. Founded by a team of proven entrepreneurs, Q Factor is committed to changing the wireless world. The company is headquartered in Waltham, Mass. and has received venture capital funding from Sigma Prime Ventures and Venrock. For more information, please visit www.qfactor.com.
