  • The world famous Garage48 start-up hackathon series is coming to Lviv!

    Have you ever dreamed of becoming a part of the next global success story coming out from Ukraine? Well this is the moment! The extreme startup hackathon series Garage48 is coming to Lviv for the first time with a bunch of top notch startup founders and mentors to help you in turning your ideas into working prototype in 48 hours! Garage48 is weekend long intensive development event to work out new web and mobile applications and bring new startups into life. Are you a developer, marketer, designer or a passionate visionary? If yes, join the ultimate start-up event in Lviv!

    Garage48 event is a mixture of a hackathon and an exercise from a bootstrapper's bible. With origins from Estonia & the Silicon Valley, Garage48 events evolved being the first of its kind events in rapidly developing tech countries: Ukraine, Latvia, Belarus, Ghana, Uganda, Kenya & elsewhere. So far over 40+ Garage48 have taken place in the CEE region and elsewhere bringing together 3500+ participants which have developed 500+ working prototypes creating dozens of successful startups, including the Seedcamp backed Ukrainian start-up

    Daria Golovach, the local organizer of Garage48 hackathons in Kiev and Chasopys Coworking Space manager brings out: "Garage48 is one of the strongest and important start-up events ever brought to Ukraine with its quality, international mentors and all in English format. It is worth to mention that Garage48 is the only hackathon supporting its teams also after the event and helping motivating teams to reach their next steps."

    We expect 100+ people to work on crazy ideas with a target for participants to have fun while developing. Teams formed on spot aim to realize ideas presented on Friday evening in 48 hours and deliver working service or prototype. The vibrant community energy, top-notch mentors and “no powerpoint” rule enables each team to reach the aim.

    Ukraine has one of the biggest IT talent pools in the world. So this is definitely a good place to start your company and we want to be there helping to boost and contribute to that. The new government has shown strong support for IT sector already and I believe these events will make a big impact in helping to build a bridge between Ukraine, the Baltic countries and Silicon Valley," said Ragnar Sass (co-founder of Garage48). With support of Estonian Development Cooperation Fund we are bringing over seasoned Estonian startup founders as mentors to help you in building a successful start-up and turning Ukraine into a world class start-up hub!

    So, here we go - registration is open! All the talented back-end, front-end and mobile developers, designers, team leaders, visionary and marketers - grab your seat! Tickets go fast! The event will take place from the 7th to 9th of November, 2014 in N-iX - a hardcore development center.
