"Daring Star Day" is an internal company event which is organized once or twice per year to push Daring Star people to think out of the box and to share and celebrate ideas with fun and creativity. The goal is to pick the best two ideas and implement a working prototype in order to become future business for Daring Star in which will invest.
All Daring Star employees are encouraged to pitch an idea to an audience consisting of Daring Star people and several guest entrepreneurs willing to share their life-changing ideas and stories. The topic of each idea may be chosen from any business field but it should be focused mainly on IT industry. Each one has five minutes to present his idea. When the presentation of the ideas is finished, all attendees vote for the idea of the year. The winners are the two persons whose ideas collected the most votes. The following days of the event a three-day hackathon is established in Daring Star premises in order for R&D department of Daring Star to implement a working prototype of those two ideas.
This year's event took place in Impact Hub Athens, a well-known place among Athens startup ecosystem. The atmosphere was great and many interesting and creative ideas were presented. After all, it's a game!
