New innovative ideas were born at Student Startup Camp
Student Startup Camp was held for the 9th year
in a row! The event was organized by the Institute of Computer Science,
Garage48, and Startup Lab. Students could express their ideas and turn them
into reality. This year we had 6 teams who all did a great job during the camp.
Here you can read short descriptions of the ideas:
ALTHO is a platform for workplaces to quickly manage the working schedule of the employees. ALTHO allows companies to create a working schedule in just one click and easily change shifts.
RePaid is a really interesting idea that tries to make loaning more stress-free and approachable for students interesting in crypto. RePaid is a platform for self-repaying crypto loans where part of the loan is reinvested to pay back.RePaid prototype
WorkFriend is an application for coworkers to connect outside of work. The app enables them to spend their free time together and meaningfully. They can play tennis, cycle, play golf, etc.WorkFriend prototype
Blabby is a social platform for people who prefer voice messages over regular text. People can share their experiences, gossip, have a giggle, or just have fun. Once you listen to the voice message once it is gone, so make sure you pay attention!Blabby prototype

The event was held online for the second year in a row but despite that, the students showed their enthusiasm and innovation. All teams managed to create working prototypes in just four days! Startup Lab was especially impressed by how hard-working all the teams were. Big thanks to the mentors and coaches from Garage48! The next Student Startup Camp takes place in spring 2023.
