Team of the Institute of Computer Science wins the Start-Up Competition of the University

A team from the Institue of Computer Science was able to win the "Lift-Off" start-up competition of the University of Goettingen in the category "start-up potentials". Our employees Ella Albrecht, Simone Münz, Fabian Trautsch, and Patrick Harms made the first place with their project "BarBQ". BarBQ is an app that lists bars, cafés, and restaurants from Göttingen and allows users to sort and filter them by different criteria, e.g., terrace, current happy hour, or accessibility. In the future, the app will support vouchers that can be published by bars within the app and bars will be able to send push notifications to announce special offers. "We are very proud, that we were able to convince the jury of our idea and its potential", said Ella Albrecht from the BarBQ team.

The team "Pandamask" got the second place for the development of a new smog mask. It protects the user from pollen, smog, and diseases, while it looks like a scarf. The audience award in the category "start-up potentials" was awarded to the project "Zatar - Kochen als Brücke", which was founded by the students initiative Enactus. Within this project, the students want to create a cooking magazine, featuring diverse recipes from refugees out of different countries, to initiate intercultural exchange.
