This year's edition of the BraveCamp was held from August 27 to September 1 in Chęciny. Male and female students trained under the guidance of professional trainers-practitioners, thanks to whom they were able to thoroughly work through their idea so that it could turn into a concrete project in the future, and then, for example, into a startup.
The culmination of the week-long academy was a gala, during which 11 people presented the result of their work. From among them, the jury selected the winners. First place and a grant worth PLN 6,000 was won by Karol Pierzchała, a physics student at the college of Inter-Faculty Individual Studies in Mathematics and Natural Sciences UW (MISMaP), and his project for an intelligent duvet - Brusleep. Karol Pierzchała also won the audience award and the alumni award of previous BraveCamp editions. Second place and a grant of PLN 4,000 went to Justyna Tylutki, a student at the Faculty of Management UW with her project toast&go - Breakfast waiting for you along the way. Third place and a grant of PLN 2 thousand went to Piotr Grajewski, a doctoral student in psychology at the Doctoral School of Social Sciences UW with his project Digital Psychology - a platform for promoting mental health in the context of the impact of technology and the digital world.
