The long awaited Food Hackathon ’19 proved to be an exceptional event I have ever participated in my life. The richness of it being made up of about 30 different nationalities across the globe made it possible to connect to the very center of the earth which makes such a great impact and I am very honored to a part of this!!!!! Getting to work with amazing people of multidisciplinary expertise was a life changing experience.In addition, the enabling environment created in Krinova yields great motivation and positive vibes to generate outstanding solutions to global challenges making our world sustainable and a better place to live.

I would say that the Hackathon was the spark that helped me realize my potential, bringing to me unforgettable eureka moments
This has been one of the most inspiring weekends in my life. In these three days I had the amazing opportunity to hack a sustainable solution for a technology transfer aimed for Central America (where I come from) and other developing south countries.
Although my project was not a winner in the pitch, I am really inspired and proud of it. The Food Hack gave me the tools and environment to be creative, but at the same time realistic, to come up with a feasible and sustainable solution. I also appreciate my work team and coaches with whom I worked this weekend, as I learned from them not only the facts and figures needed for the project, but also inspired me to improve as a person.
If I must sum up my experience as a hacker, I would say that the Hackathon was the spark that helped me realize my potential, bringing to me unforgettable eureka moments not only for the solution of my challenge, but also on the path I want to follow with my career.
