The CTU and AT&T V4 Hackathon was the first event of its kind held in the Czech Republic by the 2 host organizations. The idea originated with Jaromír Novák, chairman of the CTU Council. It’s part of his effort to drive innovation and entrepreneurship in the Czech Republic and the V4 region working with the private sector.
The winning app introduces and connects people located in the same area – like at a concert or on a train. Team Babble will also receive mentoring from Credo Ventures and Y Soft Ventures.
Chairman Novák; Eric Loeb, senior vice president, AT&T International External & Regulatory Affairs; and John Slamecka, region president, AT&T Global Business – Europe, Middle East, and Africa presented the award to Team Babble.
