Come and join our efforts to face the most important challenges in tourism, finance, community and education - it will be a weekend of tackling the challenges in each field with technology. It is time to connect to your fellow developers nationally and internationally.
The goal of the #TechfestAlbania is to develop applications & visualisations that help solving challenges and create new solutions in a rapid prototyping format. To achieve this goal, we will host real-life challenges with experts in each field and participants (startups, students, innovators, entrepreneurs) will develop new prototypes in only 24 hours directly in Tirana to cause a positive Impact to everybody.
After 24hs the developed prototypes will be presented to a jury and winner projects will be selected.
Technology can support, accelerate and invent ways how to improve our lives. We tackle the most important issues in Albania for the people in Albania and Visitors outside. At the Hackathon participants have an opportunity to take a step into the future of Albania by solving specific real-life challenges together in collaboration:
We will give detailed information about the specific challenges at the event, to keep it fair and avoid that you have to prepare something we have developed great spedific challenges for Albania but still give you lots of freedom for creativity, to balance this event fruitful for everybody.
Participants are students, employees, freelancers, experimenters. Different perspectives help creating new ideas. We are an inclusive event welcoming all cultures, genders, ages and backgrounds. This is an international event and we love environments where you meet new open minded people.
