An Alumni E.Stories will be the ideal thing to inspire the students that are competing for the E.Awards. Jaime Jorge (Codacy) and Rui Pedro Silva (C2C) will be important advisers.

In the end of this semester, the E.Awards@Técnico will distinguish the best entrepreneurship projects. On December 19th, the selected projects by the professors will pitch to a jury that will decide the winner team and give two honorable mentions.
