"We were very thankful for the support from Tabs or Spaces in the preparation and execution of our Chatbot Hackathon in Vienna.
Without their support we would not have been able to pull off such a successful event. Special thanks to Natalie Korotaeva for advising us and also being a mentor during the event."
