27|09|2020 – On September 27, 2020, the award ceremony of the Saxon participation fund competition took place on the grounds of Dresden Airport. As part of the Saxon hands-on fund, the Free State of Saxony was looking for ideas that would positively shape the structural change in the lignite regions of Lusatia and Central Germany. Heartucate was selected as one of ten winners in the Central Germany region in the start-up category. The certificate was presented personally by the Saxon Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer during the festive event.
Press Conference / Universitätsschule Dresden
13|08|2020 – Together with our fellow Samsung Solve for tomorrow winner teams Grapes and hyperspecs the Heartucate team has been invited by the city of Dresden and Samsung to spend two days full of workshops and intensive coaching in Dresden. Special highlight has been the press conference in front of the regional Saxonian press on August 13th and the visit of the Universitätsschule Dresden, that offers great options for cooperational actions with Heartucate. The Universitätsschule Dresden is a school experiment running for 15 years, in which children choose projects instead of lessons and work together in mixed groups. They work according to their own speed and interests and we are very happy to see where a cooperation with the Universitätsschule can lead us to!
