As one of the few German projects we were on stage at the Techfugees Global Summit 2018. We were the only German team to take home a prize: The 1st place in the category “Access to Rights & Information”. After several jury rounds, the winners of the Techfugees Global Challenge competition were announced at Station F in Paris. The winning projects were selected by an international jury of experts from more than a hundred applications. The competition was open to innovative projects supporting Techfugees’ five priority areas: Access to rights and information, health, education, work and social inclusion.
The event was organized by Techfugees, who also published a video of our presentation by Laura and Sven:
