Garage48 Empowering Youth Hackathon Vol 2
Timpul & Locația
We are excited to say that Garage48 is back in Moldova for the Empowering Youth hackathon which will be held on the 26-28th of March in Chisinau! Together with Yep! Moldova we invite young inspiring people to join us for the Garage48 Empowering Youth Chișinău Vol 2 and boost their ideas during the 48 hours!
There is no doubt that the 21st century is definitely the century of young people who change our world really fast by creating innovative ideas and setting new trends. During the past Empowering Youth event series we at Garage48 were amazed by the hard work, thirst for opportunities, and as a result, cool projects created by our talented youth. Last winter during the Idea Garage Empowering Youth we had a chance to bring together approximately 75 inspired participants which were empowered to state the most burning problems existing nowadays and to find best solutions to deal with them. As a result, 10 important problems were allocated together with great solutions, most of the problems came from participants’ own lifes. And in 2019 at the Empowering Youth hackathon the 75 inspiring minds came together to work hard on their stunning ideas, and some of them impressed us so much: a hate speech monitoring system, app that shows where the ambulance or firefighters are in real time, a browser plugin that would translate texts in images and many other ideas that afterwards turned into a working prototype.
We all know that having an idea and desire to develop it is not enough, you need to build connections, find skilled team members, get outside help in case you have any difficulties. Hackathons are a great opportunity to try yourself, find cool people ready to work with you and help you to create clear goals and objectives, learn more about startups and entrepreneurship, and finally, get your idea into a prototype with help of the experienced mentors! We believe that young people will determine our future, that's why it’s important to empower them and give them an opportunity to share their ideas. You(th) rock!
How does it work? In the beginning of the hackathon we will form teams around best ideas - please don’t worry if you don’t have an idea, you are more than welcome to participate in the hackathon by joining teams to work together! During the 48 hours you will have exciting, hardworking, and brainstorming time working on the idea which will turn into a working prototype by the end of the hackathon. To make it real, there will be classy local and international mentors ready to share their expertise and help you throughout the whole event. All the finished prototypes will be evaluated and the best teams will get rewarding prizes that will empower them to develop their ideas even further!
For the hackathon we are welcoming all young people - regardless of age, gender or nationality. If you have the spark inside and passion to make the world better, please join us for the Empowering Youth hackathon!
