Out of 48 teams, 26 teams were at the idea stage, 18 at the prototype stage and at the end, 4 teams already had launched their products. The Winners of Mora Ventures 1.0 were Nurone Labs who received prize money of LKR 100,000. Team Universal Solutions emerged as First Runners Up collecting LKR 20,000 and Team Business as Usual came third and was awarded LKR 10,000.
