Startup competition was divided into five categories: - Energy and Environmental Technologies - Logistics, Space and Defense Technologies - Health and Wellness Technologies - Education Technologies - Food and Agriculture Technologies. Each startup representative had five minutes and presentation to describe their startup potential (in English) to the jury and investors. Evaluation criteria were idea and tech Innovation; applicability at the market; and impact on the sector. On the third day of the event, after the lecture and the panel discussion, the winners of each sector were announced. We’re proud to say that the winner of Education Technologies category is SPARK's startup blablaDevblablaDev is a web service for young and inexperienced developers and for whoever needs them.
