I still can’t believe it but it’s true: with team Digitalmania, Hungary we’ve won 3rd place on the Microsoft Imagine Cup world finals in Paris and were one of the 6 teams to receive the Innovation Accelerator prize in the main category, Software Design!! It’s amazing… we are also the first Hungarian team to make it to the top 6 teams on the world finals as well!
Presenting at the finals, in the Louvre
The whole competition started a few months ago when we’ve decided to enter the Imagine Cup competiton. We’ve managed to win the Hungarian national round which made us qualify for the world finals among with 60 other teams across the globe. The world finals took place for 6 days. The firs few days there were qualifiers from where 12 teams advanced to the semi-finals. After another round 6 of the 12 teams were selected for the grand final. The qualifiers and semi-finals were closed to the audience, whereas the grand final was in front of about 2,000 people in the Louvre! I never expected to be presenting in front of this many people!
