LI concludes a virtual national hackathon in Jordan with 3 innovative solutions

The virtual hackathon, from 19 – 21 August, brought together Jordanian young entrepreneurs and representatives from three ministries to connect and collaborate on finding innovative solutions for three different challenges faced by the Jordanian government.

For Turqat, the idea of establishing an onsite, state of the art car service company that caters to busy vehicle owners came to mind when one of the co-founders was unable to maintain his car's needs due to his hectic lifestyle. 🚗 
Through our EU-funded @medstarts_project, the Turqat team in Palestine was introduced to a vast network of mentors and were able to create long-term linkages with stakeholders. Additionally, they will receive a subgrant of 10,000 EUR, which will be allocated to further develop the #startup. ⬆️ 
"Anyone can come up with an idea, but few are brave enough to execute it", says Tareq Abuyousef, co-founder of Turqat.
