  • WHAT CAN YOU BUILD IN 48H?

    Garage48 is coming again! This time we are calling all creative communities of electronics, mechatronics, software engineers, artists, product designers and marketers. No matter what skills you possess - everybody who wants to build something is welcome!

    Join us for the very first 
    GARAGE48 HARDWARE & ARTS HACKATHON in Tbilisi 
    and build your crazy idea into an awesome product!

    We'll start on Friday at 18:00 with opening doors. Please come on time, as the registration process might take some time. This time before the official opening is a great opportunity for getting to know the crowd and to network.
