Three out of ten ideas were nominated last Friday to pitch at Partos Innovation Festival, congratulations to Online Echoes, SkinApp and ZINC! One of the three ideas will win The Spindle Innovation Award in the category ‘Best Idea 2017’ at the Festival on October 12.
The best inventions are often the result of combining the latest technology and a problem that you are facing. This also applies to Tykn, a startup of a 33-year-old Syrian who builds a birth register on the blockchain.
This summer The Spindle facilitates its Summer Labs: five engaging Fridays to develop ideas into prototypes via design thinking. Ten ideas were selected by the independent Jury to join the Summer Labs. Late June, the second Summer Lab took place.

Last March I applied for a chance to visit Rome and participate in the Harvard World Model United Nations; a collegiate-level conference to discuss world issues and generate solutions.
By leveraging Blockchain technology, we are able to register the legal identity of children such as Lyn permanently through a mobile application, forever. No matter the terrible conditions in the home countries of these children, they shall always be registered, where no war, database failure or human error could possibly change this.
Project ZINC has granted us first place in The Spindle Innovation Awards! Click the logo below for an overview of what we have been working on!
Last February, we ventured down to a Syrian refugee camp in the Bekaa-Barelias area in Lebanon, with the goal to learn as much as possible about the conditions the people there are living in to help in designing the most elegant solution. What we found was that, where the actual registration of children is even more cumbersome to refugees than we thought (especially for children past the age of one), a grand majority of people inside the refugee camp actually own or have access to a smartphone with a fair internet connection. This is our gateway to the solution these people deserve.
