ABOUT

Share your idea, build your team and get to work: life is short, so why wasting time? Give all you’ve got and create a new business from scratch in a weekend. In a unique atmosphere, people from various backgrounds come together and develop early business concepts.

Mentors with proven experience in start-ups will guide you with first-hand tips on how to make a successful business. By Sunday, you’ll have the foundations for a functional start-up: the projects developed during the weekend will be evaluated by a panel of judges.

You can either pitch your own business idea or help a presenter develop their idea. From business guy to programmer to designer – everyone is welcome!

Indri Dyrmishi

Indri is the “lightning rod” of the team, when a problem came out he’s the hero. He takes control of the situation by finding a way into being positive. He is not on the roof (terrace), but you can find him at every step we take.

Bobi Xhaxho
Bobi is the real boss of the situation and not only in his status as students responsible chairman. In fact, in Albanian, his name means :Being the boss. And like a true boss, he merely finds the time to go to the barber: don't be afraid!
Faola Hodaj
Faola is like a candle, when our "lights" go off, her creativity shines. She can get irritated very quickly, but after 5 minutes she's ready to give you a hug. She has a clever tongue and develops an amazing ability to enrich the facts with stimulating and imaginative chatter.
Alba Balla
Alba is a real hurricane: She is strong and she involves everyone in what she plans to do. With a loudly laugh or a smile and her energy, she finds the time to do anything. She can be found easily, just turn your head where the noise came.
