Garage48 - Build your Unicorn before 2020 finishes

Estonian-initiated Garage48 hackathon invites startups and enterpreneurs to build some awesome rpototypes within 48 hours (usually at weekends) to improve the future of the wood, empower the young for green economy and find future solutions with the support of U.S. Embassy.

The COVID-19 pandemic has completely altered the world’s socio-economic landscape, changing everything, including
the way we work and approach global matters. Across the globe, trust in government, media and corporate organisations has fallen to its lowest level ever. It is not surprising that latest research and trend reports are pointing out the very same outcome: there is an epic power shift away from institutions towards individuals and entrepreneurs. People put their trust into socially conscious problem solvers to take a stand and build a more resilient base for the future. 

There are some Garage48 events coming up, all are designed to shape the future based on pre-defined challenges and topics. Let's not end 2020 with bad memories. Let's build something spectacular out of this mess, develop game-changer prototypes and implement them in real life through Garage48's advanced post-hackathon support programmes.
