NASA: Space Apps Challenge
We won the license to organize the NASA Space Apps Challenge in Macedonia from 2013. It is the world’s largest global hackathon, engaging thousands of citizens to use NASA’s open data to build innovative solutions for Earth and Space challenges. We launched this event in 12 locations in Central and East Europe, 1 in Africa, and 1 in India. Also, we manage the Silicon Valley in the USA.
ESA & CNES: Act in Space
Upon recommendation by NASA in 2017, we signed a contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the French Space Agency (CNES) to bring their innovation competition for startups named “Act in Space” for the first time in the USA in 2018. We organized the event at 5 locations in the USA: New York (NY), San Francisco (CA), Los Angeles (CA), Houston (TX), and Orlando (FL).
SAP & IBM: Corporate Innovation
We partnered with the global giants – SAP and IBM, to organize hackathons for startup teams in the USA to work on real-life challenges by using SAP and IBM technologies. Also, we involved their corporate employees to create synergies and explore further opportunities for innovation and cooperation between the startups and the corporates through SpinOffs.
BRITISH COUNCIL: Balkan Challenge
We partnered with the British Council to organize the Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge for the Western Balkan Countries. 18 Startup founders from Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, and Serbia attended our preparatory workshops, prepared their demos, and pitched in front of our judges for a chance to win 6.000 £.
