All Garage48 events are held in English and have ~100 international participants. Participants have different skills, ranging from software development to design, marketing, sales and entrepreneurship.

The Garage48 events usually start at 5pm on a Friday evening. All participants gather together in a big room and pitch about 30 to 40 ideas on stage. Each idea is put on the wall and everyone can choose their favourite idea and team. Usually about 12-15 ideas will be selected and teams start working.

The goals of Garage48 events:

– Organize useful, international and fun startup events with a really lean budget
– Show that teams can turn an idea into a working service or prototype within just 48 hours
– Prove that new web and mobile projects can be started with a good team and lean budget
– Promote entrepreneurship and startup culture in Estonia, Northern Europe and Africa
– Teach people to work under a tough deadline – you need to focus on the core of the project
– Meet new people from other industries, roles and countries
– Less talk, more action and fun!
