The Garage48 Chisinau 2017 has kicked off with great people and great ideas!

We are back in beautiful Chisinau, Moldova to organise the Garage48 Chisinau 2017 hackathon. Together with Civitta, Dreamups Innovation Campus and our sponsor Estonian Development Coordination we welcomed 43 participants, 14 ideas from which 10 went into development. We can’t wait to see what amazing outcomes we will see after 48 hours of hardcore coding and brainstorming. Below are all of the ideas pitched and the ideas submitted are marked in bold.

1. Commodum
A platform that will would link customers with software companies. The main idea is to help the client to structure his idea with technical requirements by which companies can apply for this project.

2. Premium second hand textiles

7. Online training program for pharmacists.
A platform to have online trainings rather than brands giving information once or twice a year. Pharma companies would give the content and the platform is for the pharmacy company to get an individual program especially made for their pharmacy and their employees.
