On May 19th, we started Arikovani Young Entrepreneurs campaign in commemoration of Atatürk, Youth and Sports Day. High school students had the opportunity to showcase their innovative projects. The campaign has come to an end and the results are more than impressive.
As the mission of Arikovani is to support the local technology and foster innovation in the country, we have given a platform for young Turkish entrepreneurs to present their ideas and projects.
The projects of the students were presented on gencarikovani.com where the supporters were able to pledge virtual money in order to support a given project. The top three most funded projects won Alya 3D printers and Ape X drones. With Ape X drones were awarded all projects that reached their goal.
XCancer was the most supported project – it raised 58,575 AriCoins. In second place came IdeaSity with 52,775 AriCoins. And on third place came AlzhEv with 33,750 AriCoins. The participating young entrepreneurs raised altogether 247 thousand AriCoins.
The young entrepreneurs received many rewards, depending on the amount of AriCoins their projects have raised. The rewards included Outliers Notepad, Arikovani cups, badges and stickers.
Here are all the projects that took part in the Young Arikovani campaign. For detailed information about each project, click on their names.
