"I think what NASA is doing is brilliant."
Maria supported Guatemala City's local organization that served as host for the 2015 International Space Apps Challenge in order to grow the projects created during the event.
Over 135 participants took part in the event held at the University of San Carlos. Maria is the business development coordinator for Campus Tec, which is an incubator that includes over 100 high tech local companies. As a result of her professional experience, Maria and team offered project acceleration opportunities for projects created during Space Apps. She is coordinating a virtual project accelerator: to focus the post-Space Apps project team efforts and help provide access to resources and support.
To Maria, NASA and NASA's Space Apps challenge, play a positive role in helping the local community innovate,
We look forward to seeing the Space Apps project acceleration in action! Learn more about Maria’s efforts at Campus Tec: http://www.mzaghi.com/e-desarrollo/campus-tec-guatemala
