Student Stories: Janja Popovic: My first business hackathon with Gorenje and Microsoft

Janja Popović (MACE16, Fashion & the Creative Economy) recently participated in a business hackathon in Slovenia – check out the blog post she wrote about it: My first Business Hackathon

You will notice that they worked in a way that is very similar to the way we work. Most importantly though, you will notice Janja’s confidence. I always admired her entrepreneurial spirit and determination and it is fantastic to see our MACErs go above and beyond their discipline with courage. Keep going, Janja Popović!
