Recently Garage48 took place in Lviv for the first time. Garage48 (G48) is an international event allowing participants to present their business ideas, consult with experts, receive a feedback from investors, form a team and as a result to create a prototype of their project and all this within 48 hours during a weekend.
Two weeks before the hackaton on the initiative of Maxym Lysak, CEO and co-founder of Lviv Startup Depot Ragnar Saas, a serial startup entrepreneur and a founder of startup boot camp Garage48 in his native Estonia met with students of Lviv Polytechnic National University. Within Garage48 Ragnar has organized more than 20 hackatons in a range of countries including Eastern Europe, thus helping to develop startups and entrepreneurship. Due to hackatons more than 10 startups are already created and successfully developing popular products.
Ragnar Saas delivered a lecture “How to build a successful Internet startup for world market from Eastern Europe” to students of Lviv Polytechnic National University. Ragnar Saas' emotional speech invoked numerous questions and awoke students' creative activity.
