What is Garage48 about?

Garage48 is a weekend long intensive development event to work out innovative technological solutions. In 48 hours, participants turn their ideas into working prototypes. A Garage48 event is a mixture of a hackathon and an exercise from a bootstrapper's bible. With origins from Estonia & the Silicon Valley, Garage48 events evolved being the first of its kind events in rapidly developing tech countries: Ukraine, Latvia, Belarus, Ghana, Uganda, Kenya & elsewhere. The aim of Garage48 is to bring innovative ideas and new startups into life.


How does Garage48 work?

  • The event begins on the Friday night with pitching ideas and forming teams.
  • Experienced technical mentors and field experts guide the teams towards better solutions and working prototypes over the weekend.
  • Sunday evening the event ends with presenting prototypes and selecting winners. Although, everyone is a winner after making many new contacts, crazy progress and learning a lot over the weekend.


What's self-explanatory today can be heritage tomorrow!
