Last Thursday 19th of December we selected in a public event ,that took place in Arts Santa Mònica, the first three dreamers that will join Imagine Express 2014!
The day started out with an exclusive hackathon were 7 amazing software engineers where invited to take on a challenge. For more thank four hours these 7 brilliant brains coded their way through the day. At the end of the Hackathon they presented their demos to our jury, which were very surprised with the work that had been generated in such a short period of time. Thank you to our jury for their feedback and time: Ricard Garriga (younoodle), Josep Amoros (wayra), Sergi Hernanz (inqbarna) And congratulations to all our participants for their extraordinary work: Alex Chimeno, Fernando Garcia, Guissepe Basile, Horacio Herrera, Josep Cumeras, Oriol Blanc and Ronan O Ciosoig!
During the public event, 5 creative finalists presented their ideas in front of over 300 people. From the Imagine team we would like to congratulate all of the finalist for their great initiative and great job! Congratulations David Kaufmann, Enric Alicarte, Jon Urbina, Josep Segarra, Patricia Barragan. We would also like to thank the jury for their insights and support, Adrià Batlle (mobile world capital foundation), Dan Peisajovich (complot), Sonia Mulero (fundación Inlea), Philippe Delespesse (Imagine)
Five business profile finalists also had to pitch during 90 seconds in front of the audience and the jury. One of our original finalists was not able to make it on time to the event so we opened the microphone to someone in the crowd to take the opportunity. We were very please to see that Marc Ramírez overcome his fears and jump on stage! All five candidates captivated the attention of everyone in the room, congratulations: Gema Muñoz, Marc Ramírez, Nil Daunis, Sana Khouja and Sara Sandino. Thank you also to our wonderful jury for their dedication, Josep Maria Valero (BLE), Manuel Marin (EADA), Urs Rothmayr (Founder Institute), Cristina Salvador (Imagine).
After a very difficult deliberation by the judges the winners of each profiles were the following:
