Garage48 season continues in new great locations!

This August Garage48 will offer you the possibility to participate in the very first seaside hackathon in Kaliningrad - Garage48 Kaliningrad Seaside Special 2013 - a great location with a very special edition. September will bring a mobile applications focused event Garage48 EMT Appmillionaire Camp 2013 in Tallinn, being a round two for the famous EMT App Millionaire Contest held last season. In October we will be in sunny Pärnu for the first time holding a woman focused event and bringing finally more women  to our events. You definitely don't want to miss Garage48 Pärnu 2013 event.

Garage48 is an event for brave and active startup minded people who want to develop their ideas into working products over the course of a weekend. Garage48 brings together people with different skills and visionaries with ideas that could rock the world! We are skipping paperwork, spreadsheets and we're going back to the roots of tech projects for building the prototypes in good old "garage" way. Take a look at past events. Because of the actual results and impact in local startup communities Garage48 has been in global media many times.

Garage48 EMT Appmillionaire Camp 2013
One of EMT’s goals is to talk about the mobile applications and teach people to use their smartphones more than ever. An excellent example is the App Millionaire Campaign, which was in Estonia where it gained huge popularity, and now EMT has decided to give to best idea authors one more chance to realize their ideas in Garage48 EMT Appmillionaire Camp 2013
Be sure to take part in this exciting event focused on mobile applications held at Technopolis Ülemiste from 13-15th September. Register for the event on our webpage.

Garage48 Pärnu 2013 "Bringing XX to Garage48"

For the very first time Garage48 is organizing an event in Estonian summer capital Pärnu together with Development Centre of Pärnu County and woman focused non-profit organization Tech SistersGarage48 Pärnu 2013 will take place 11-13th October at Pärnumaa Kutsehariduskeskus. The registration is open to everyone, we encourage especially women to come and try to realize their ideas and take part in hackathon. 

The idea of having woman focus is to get more women excited about IT and technology in general. We are trying to encourage people to step out of their comfort zone, to experiment and learn new things. Read more about Tech Sisters here.

Garage48 expects around 100 participants with various skills and knowledge: visionary entrepreneurs and project managers, marketers, designers and developers. A number of international mentors will support participants through-out the weekend and best teams will get references to get into great accelerator programs after the event. Best ideas come out from real life problems and can be generated by a teenager or housewife as well as senior professionals; thus we aim to bring together both exceptional tech talent and visionaries for a life-changing experience. Garage48 can be a place to launch a start-up, meet your next co-founders, learn more about product development and teamwork than in months of regular work and, most importantly, have fun by achieving more than one can imagine!

Screw it, let's do it!
