But, it was not a competition, it was a journey together with more than 30 passionate amazing women. Landa Grembi, Albana Mucaj, Arbresha Talla, Nevila Dudaj, Marjana Murja and many other great women, but not only made possible the organisation of this competition. The event went beyond expectations. Jury, Mentors and Startups came HOME from abroad, Germany, Austria, Italy, USA, and Kosovo to witness the event.
