ThinkBiz and Celestyal Cruises are inviting students, recent graduates and young professionals of up to 30 years old to join CruiseInn and create a new startup in Tourism, Oenogastronomy and Maritime.

CruiseInn is the first startup hackathon in Greece taking place aboard an actual cruise ship. In total, 35 participants will have the chance to put their startup ideas or programming, designing, and business skills to the test in order to prototype innovative business ideas. During the cruise, teams will be offered rigorous hands-on training on basic business and marketing concepts, and they will be guided by experienced mentors in refining their ideas. In 7 days they will be asked to develop an MVP of their product and present it in front of a jury of experts. The three winning ideas will receive business prizes from CruiseInn partners, while the prize for the first place is a 3,500 euros cash award from Celestyal Cruises.
