Last week (27 and 29 September), Poraka Nova organized the Macedonian mPreneur National Camp, via ZOOM platform, where 4 selected participants and teams presented their mobile app solutions who have social impact and bring positive changes in the society.
Among the participants and youth entrepreneurs, professors from UIST – University of Information Science and Technology “St. Paul the Apostle” attended the online pitch competition and with their expertise they provided advises for the young entrepreneurs on how they can improve some components on their solutions. Afterwards their role was to evaluate the applications and presentations.
