We've reached the end of this project... 16 brave innovators (out of 109 applied), made their first steps towards the realization of their ideas by learning how to do it. Throughout the project, Integrity AO and BAS have tried to teach the young (and those not so young :) ) innovators on how to fish or in other terms, how to make money out of their ideas as well as how to present them efficiently before potential investors or supporters.
So, 16 participants stood their ground in front of a jury comprised of business minded people, and presented their ideas in order to receive feedback and/or maybe some initial investment. All was good, everyone was happy as the presentations were on their course and eventually, after the last presentation - the jury had to decide the winner and the two runner-ups. After a brief intermezzo, the jury came back with the results.. And the winner was???
- It was Kanija Rahmanovski - from Kichevo, Macedonia (CONGRATZ!)- with his invention "The Smart Ladder". Potential investors (or anyone who wants to lend a hand in the realization of this idea) can contact him about more details on his e-mail email@example.com or through Integrity AO. (just write to us on Facebook or through the contact page on our site)
- 2nd place went into the hands of Zoran Mizhimakoski from Ohrid with his innovation - finding uses for the coffee residue.. More about his idea you can find by contacting him directly on firstname.lastname@example.org or through us as organizers.
-3rd place went to the home brewed beer innovation - or in other words - to the owner of the idea - Dimitar Jovanovski - who can treat you with his excellent beer (Yes, we've tried it - and it's awesome!) if you contact him at - email@example.com or of course, through us.
At last, as promised, here is the gallery of pictures of the happenings of the day! Cheers!
