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.

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.
