Hackathon 2.0

What would you be able to make in 48 hours? Have you ever wondered?

We asked the same question and here are the answers we got:

35 participants, 5 mentors, lots of big ideas and calories burned through brainstorming.

Given the current situation and the reduction of the Covid-19 measures, we were extremely grateful for the opportunity to organize this year’s edition of the Hackathon in person. We are thankful to the IBCM North Campus for providing us the premises for this event.

During the 2-day session, our teams came up with different ideas that covered various topics such as tourism, education, mentorship, environment, etc.

They worked on their technological solutions, as well as developing their business ideas. The group of mentors selflessly shared the knowledge and guided the teams to their final presentation.

This year’s team of mentors consists of: Ana T. Dimitrijević, PR Manager, Entrepreneur and Digital Marketing Specialist, Aleksej Jocić from HackLab Belgrade, Filip Milošević, Research and Development Specialist at SHARE Fondacija, Dominik Deda, Project & Marketing Manager at Kosovo ICT Association – STIKK and Ljubiša Mijačić, Advisor to the Mayor of the Zubin Potok.

The first place went to the team Vuk Vučko. Their idea was My First Company website.

Winning team – Vuk Vučko

Their project consists of 3 parts that are aimed at solving the problems that young entrepreneurs and those who want to try their hand at business are faced with.

– The first part is a course intended for beginners and those who want to start their own business. The course is free and interactive and is in the form of a roadmap which, if followed, helps a lot with whatever work is involved.

– The platform is the second part and it represents a connection between business people who have a problem and experts who offer mentorship for a fee or percentage of the project.

– The third part is planned for further development and represents the Founder 2 Founder (F2F) part of the platform that serves to connect the founders of startups or young entrepreneurs. It’s meant for creating a community of people who will discuss problems and solutions.

The runner-up team is FM3. They created EduO – an educational online learning platform that offers students live classes and online courses. It is also made for unemployed teachers who are in the need of a job but also for teachers who have free time. Students can use it to learn subjects that are difficult for them in their school, college, or uni. But they can also learn additional courses i.e. web development.

Third place went to the Njet Work team with their idea for an app PROVO. It is a phone app that offers information on upcoming events, with the ability to narrow the search depending on the type of event and/or location.

Third place – Njet Work

We congratulate everyone who participated and encourage youth to continue developing innovative ideas even outside of the Hackathon. The future is in your hands!
