Creative Business Cup Albania 2021

Triple City successfully managed to organise the Creative Business Cup 2021, a global annual round initiative in which an opportunity was given to new entrepreneurs, and innovators to come up with new and amazing ideas. Partnering with Adriapol Institute and Barleti University, Triple City managed to create a competition that could empower entrepreneurs in their creative industries and help them extend their business ideas. In this event, more than 20 different ideas were competing and getting an opportunity to be seen and assisted by the personnel of the competition.

Creative Business Cup was an opportunity for the new entrepreneurs and startups to connect with investors and the global market, and as well strengthen their innovative capabilities to the benefit of the industry and society. The winner of the Creative Business Cup will get an opportunity to compete on an international level with other startups and entrepreneurs around the world, and as well, including the other three second places, will get a chance to be incubated for three months at Triple City.

Thanks to the amazing and successful judicial panel, consisting of:

  • Esmeralda Hasani (Director of Adriapol Institute);
  • Ilir Butka ( Manager of Vitamina Studio);
  • Rafaela Rica ( founder of Iceberg Communication);

Creative Business Cup Albania was successfully organized and judged. It was a hard decision to make based on the amazing quality of the applications submitted. However, we are excited to announce that the winner of the Creative Business Cup 2021 is Igli Zhupa. The winners of the second place, whose ideas will get a chance to be incubated at Triple City, were Andi Tepelena, Greta Malaj, and Panajot Kosta.
