Habit Creator is a game-enhanced habit tracker that helps users set, track and achieve personal goals. It was developed as part of HackED Beta — a 24-hour hackathon put on by the Computer Engineering Club of the University of Alberta.

Building Your Dream Team

Building Your Dream Team

We know surrounding yourself with the right people can be make-or-break for success when starting a company.
