Thank you Hallifornia!

Thank you Hallifornia!

We had three amazing days at Hallifornia 2019 in Varberg on the west coast of Sweden, now close to two weeks ago. Apart from a lot of visitors and good interactions with a lot interested people, we got some coverage in the local paper Norra Halland and KungsbackaPosten, which we of course are very grateful for!

We seized the opportunity earlier this spring, which some of you already know, and applied to “Silicon Halli”. Silicon Halli is the Swedish part of an EU-project called “InnoQuarter”, which has the aim to help startups test their products on potential customers at an early stage in their process. Silcon Halli has then partnered up with the festival Hallifornia, which takes place every summer in Varberg.

After we received the news of us being chosen..

Hallifornia and us "going live" is coming closer

Hallifornia and us "going live" is coming closer

With only a bit more than two weeks left we are trying to get everything in order for our first live appearance at Hallifornia in Varberg the 18th to 20th of July.

We’ll have two physical locations on site. One in the Silicon Halli-area, together with the other startups, where we will demonstrate our equipment and visitors will be able to stick their feet in a small pool and feel the force. The second location, will be right by the water, somewhere between the “Surfers corner” and the public swimming area out on the pier. See the map below for approximate locations.

Meet us at Hallifornia 18-20th of July in Varberg, Sweden

We are happy to announce that we are one of a selected few startups that has been chosen for the Silicon Halli startup initiative, under the Hallifornia festival, the 18-20th of July in Varberg, Sweden this summer.

During those days we will present our Finthrusters to the world, in real life, and hopefully also let everybody try them out! However, it all depends on how the arrangements on site will turn out. More updates on that will come!

Snorkeling spots in Mallorca

Snorkeling spots in Mallorca

During Jonas paternity leave, Mallorca became the place for him and his family to spend 3 weeks during the end of February and beginning of March, escaping the winter in Sweden for a while.

Along with a lot of hours spent on playgrounds in Palma and in the south west parts of Mallorca, visiting good snorkeling spots for the upcoming summer's testing and validation, was one of his tasks.

Presenting team Wawken

Welcome to our blog!

Team Wawken consists of Bengt, Jan and Jonas and all three of us live in the south west parts of Sweden, spread out around the city of Gothenburg.

We have started Wawken on our spare time, developing what we believe to be the ultimate underwater experience and we hope we get the chance to introduce ourselves and our fantastic Finthrusters to the world during the year of 2019. We recently sent in our patent application so stay tuned for more information and more in depth presentations!
