ReStart Slovensko is an initiative that creates space for people, who apart from spotting problems, are also good at solving them.
Everyone – citizens, nongovernmental organizations, start-ups – is more than welcome to submit their ideas until 14 October.
The projects should be related to the following topics:
- Public space
- Good governance
- Rule of law
The end game is to come up with web and mobile apps – strictly open source and strictly for the greater good.
From 15 to 22 October the projects will undergo public scrutiny and the seven most interesting will get to go to a 48 hour hack camp held in Žilina.
The nice part is that you don’t need to be a programming expert or a web designer. If your idea or project is good enough you will be given technical help.
The top three projects get 5,000 euros each to produce a functioning prototype.
So stop grumbling at home about how things in Slovakia don’t work and change them yourself.
