ScaleFocus with a recognition in the NASA International Space Apps Challenge – Sofia 2016



NASA International Space Apps Challenge took place on the 23-rd and 24-th of April, 2016 in Sofia, Plovdiv and Burgas. It was an exciting competition between enthusiastic teams full of smart innovative ideas. ScaleFocus participated in the challenge in Sofia with two projects:

  • Nadya Staneva and Stoyko Nalbantov with “AIRIFY”
  • Aleksandar Petrov with “PLANE IN THE SKY”

Alongside with our participants in the competition in Sofia, ScaleFocus’ talent management specialist Alexander Stoimenov was invited to be part of the jury in Burgas, in order to help evaluation of competing projects.

The People’s choice award

ScaleFocus’ team of Nadya and Stoyko won the People’s choice award after online voting. The audience chose “Airify” as their favorite project amongst 15 competitors. Airify is a mobile application which enables users to see how a concrete behavior can impact the nature. For example, it can get a data from NASA about current levels of carbon oxide in particular urban area and calculate the reduction of bad emissions if the user travel by bicycle instead of a car.

This is a great recognition for ScaleFocus’ team and perfect opportunity to contribute significantly to more sustainable relationship between humans and nature. Good luck in next round!

Vote for our team to reach the final round!
