THE Port = where to meet change makers

THE Port has been named in the list of places where to meet change makers. 


"After attending THE Port hackathon, I returned home inspired and with my brain full of ideas. I quit my job as an IMS engineer, became self-employed, and started up a robotics project. I also joined fellow THE Port attendees Miganoush and Gretta to work on their project,, which is an online platform for connecting travellers with skill-sharing opportunities around the world. Our vision is to enable informal education across social and political boundaries, to share knowledge, ideas, perspectives, to inspire and to be inspired.
Thanks toTHE Port, I got the push I needed to change my life!"
