HAVE YOU ALWAYS DREAMED OF BECOMING AN ENTREPRENEUR?
ARJANA GJETA (HIRE STUDENTS)
I see entrepreneurship as a career path for me because I like that it provides you with endless challenges and opportunities to learn. It's about taking risks and getting out of your comfort zone. This is what I like about this environment.
HIMADRI PATHAK (CHECKMATH)
Coming up with an idea is a mental exercise that I do every year. I look back at my year, try to summarize it in one sentence, and identify an area of struggle. As an entrepreneur, what I want to do is see if those struggles have already been solved. That's where my ideas come from, And that's why I have so many ideas!
PRASAD RAO BIKKINENI (CHECKMATH)
Before coming to the Startup Weekend I was a developer and had already been working for five years. I've always dreamed of being an entrepreneur, but I didn't know how to achieve it. That's why I decided to attend the Ideation Camp organized at the University. I learned a lot and met other like-minded students. It gave me so many ideas and new skills. Then I participated in the Startup Weekend and made new friends!
SELVI PJESHKA (HIRE STUDENTS)
Before the Startup Weekend I attended the Ideation Camp organized by the University of Luxembourg. It was a great experience. I chose the project I wanted to work with because I liked the idea a lot. In the future, I would like to become an entrepreneur because it's all about challenging fear. Being an entrepreneur means taking risks and that really appeals to me.
JONI BEU (CHECKMATH)
The Ideation Camp at the University was a really challenging event. I followed up with Himadri's idea, Checkmath, because I'm a passionate student of economics. I enjoy solving math problems. It started as a hobby and then it became a passion with endless problems to solve.
MIKE PEREIRA GONÇALVES (CHECKMATH)
I'm the only one in the team who didn't go to the Ideation Camp. However, I managed to get a ticket to go to the Startup Weekend. I didn't plan to at the very beginning. I also didn't know much about the startup world. It was my first time and my main motivation was really the experience I could get from such a hackathon. I chose Checkmath as the project I wanted to work on because I could really relate to this problem. It was a great experience overall.
