Grand finale of the 1st Tirana Hackathon!

Amazing finale, to the 36 hours sprint of the 1st EU for Innovation Hackathon, yesterday at Polis University.

After 2 days of intensive work, creating solutions for the theme “How to make Tirana a European hotspot for digital nomads?”, our Hackathon university teams had the chance to pitch their ideas on the big stage, in front of a professional jury, composed of representatives from the Municipality of Tirana and players of the Albanian innovation ecosystem.

It was extremely inspiring to see the quality of work and the content with which the hackers could come up in such a short amount of time.

In the end, three university teams were awarded winners of the 1st Hackathon by Deputy Mayor of Tirana, Anuela Ristani: Epoka University, Polis University and the Faculty of Natural Sciences from the University of Tirana.

We would like to thank all participants, mentors and partners for this incredible and fun experience!

You all rock and we hope to see you again in Hackathon2!
