Hack The Gap continues to grow under the leadership of founders Kristen Womack and Jenna Pederson.

At Hack the Gap 2017 last weekend, the third annual event, more than 100 women came out for two intense days in Minneapolis to pitch their ideas and work together on bringing them to life.   Five finalist teams demoed their work in Target Plaza Commons as we captured below:

CarolBot built a system that organizes users’ learning resources and reminds users to consume those resources.

Happy Head created a mouthguard that can detect when an athlete may have sustained a head trauma. The technology connects to an app that parents and coaches could use to monitor the athlete for possible concussions.

Vivurve is an app that can connect local fitness trainers with potential clients.

Queer Teen Support built a system designed to connect queer teens with the support resources nearest them.

Talkative Chef built a voice-activated recipe and cooking resource meant to keep ingredient-covered hands off paper or electronic recipes.

    Really solid set of demos with quite a bit of diversity in terms of problems addressed, tech used, and markets. Very nice work to all of them!
