Estonian hackathon Garage48 opens a new hub in Tallinn (Video)

Hackathon Garage48 recently opened a new spacious and funky hub in the centre of Tallinn.

Garage48 hub is a community led co-working, inspirational space for start-ups and creative, tech and entrepreneurial people from Tallinn and anywhere else in the world. The working language at the hub is English and international members are therefore very welcome. Tallinn has fast growing start-up and technology community, but had so far no co-working space for people to work, learn, network, innovate and relax together.

The organisation behind the hub, Garage48 Foundation, was started by 6 active entrepreneurs from Estonian Startup Leaders Club – to promote start-ups and entrepreneurship in Estonia, Europe and Africa. The idea is to have weekend event series where people can turn their ideas into working web and mobile services within just 48 hours. So far they have organised events as far as in South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda and Ghana, as well as closer to home in Finland, Latvia and Ukraine. The program is supported by tech giants Google, Nokia and Skype.
