Epoka University students attended the 4th “Startup Live Tirana” organized by “Unique Junior Enterprise”. Startup Live events stand for fresh thoughts, subtle branding and great PR, which over years have hosted more than 50 events in 35 countries with over 5.500 participants.
The 4th “Startup Live Tirana” took place during May 15-17, 2015, where 19 teams attended. Two teams from Epoka University, attended this event with two platforms, which drew the jury and audience’s attention.
#sharealbania App, which is a platform developed by Epoka students, Klaudio Imeraj, Geldi Belba and Frenkli Misja, was one of the projects of this competition. It is an application, downloadable in Google Play Store (and very soon in App.Store) free of charge, which aims at promoting touristic values of Albania by joining three elements, promotion of Albanian tourism, tourists and local businesses. #sharealbania App was awarded the AIDA prize of 300,000 ALL.
On the other hand, rest.al, was the other project developed by Epoka students, Edlira Dede, Erjon Skenderi, Gjergji Sevo and Suada Makishti. It is a platform developed to provide information that would come in hand to everyone seeking restaurants or rest houses around the places they currently are. Its usage is very broad and not only locals can use it, but also the tourists visiting Albania. Rest.al is a web application and an Android app as well, which aims at becoming the bridge between the users and businesspeople. Rest.al was awarded the third “Startup Live Tirana” prize.
