  • It is time to get super(em)powered! Garage48 Empowering Youth Hackathon is coming to Moldova to enable youth to gain more power and control in the society!

    Being creative, expressing yourself, striving for excellence and never giving up are the key factors to initiate a change. We all have these powers, but we can’t really  trigger them alone. Coming together and sharing your ideas and thoughts with everyone will give you a better understanding and create clear goals and objectives.

    Empowering the young ones  and giving them an opportunity  to share their ideas is what makes the world go round as they are the ones who will determine our future.

    This event is a possibility to surround yourself with people who empower you to become better,  so prepare yourself for 48-hours of excitement, inspiration, creativity and validation. Teams are formed on  spot around the best ideas (so please, do not worry if you don´t have an idea at all - you are more than welcome to the hackathon!). 48-hours that follow, will be filled with vibrant community energy,  brainstorming and hard work, all in order to turn the initial idea into a working prototype. All the teams will be supported by top-notch local and international mentors. All the finished prototypes will be presented at the Sunday finale and the best teams will receive rewarding prizes that will enable them to develop their ideas even further!

    Coffee, warm meals and snacks are provided throughout the event, so you can focus on developing your idea into a full-on prototype.

    Just to be clear, this hackathon is meant for everyone- we do not discriminate by age, gender or the ideas, as long as they all carry that spark of hope for a better tomorrow. Synergy& diversity are vital for innovation and growth!

    Inspiring minds, young designers, developers and forward-thinkers- register now, share your idea on the Facebook event and get ready for the weekend that can change your professional life!

    Hackathon is being held in ARTCOR-  in an amazing new maker-lab co-creating space right in the heart of Chisinau. ARTCOR   is meant to gather all the creative minds and forward thinkers under one roof and grow and learn off the synergy this energy creates (heart emoji)

    Remember, you DO  have a story to tell  and now is the time to start!  #g48youth
