“For Kahoot! it was a huge reality check to get out of London and Oslo to test our products on the world’s most important market. Also, being away from day to day routines gave us another perspective that enabled us to focus on the things that really mattered. TINC was a catalyst for us making the right choices regarding market, users and what needed to be created to make this something that could really take off.
— -Johan Brand, Co-Founder and CEO, Kahoot!
