“Corrency is a perfect example of how a hackathon project can continue its successful development and support local economy and regional development. The fact that the project has a promising future is proven by it being ranked among the top 15 of more than two hundred projects in the hackathon.”

"I am glad we could have contributed to the creation of this project. Without the support of the Ministry of Industry and Trade and its Czech Rise Up program, such a pioneer and innovative project could have risen only in limited conditions. We are looking forward to seeing how this pilot develops. We believe that this concept will work. Its comprehensive solution offers much wider application in other economic and social issues."
Ing. Petr Očko, Ph.D., Ministry of Industry and Trade Deputy Minister for Digitisation and Innovation
