Read time: approx 1 mins

Erasmus student, Toni Kostanic, recently competed in and was part of the winning team in a 24 hour Lock-in Challenge at the Welsh Innovation Centre for Enterprise (ICE).

Designed to encourage entrepreneurial spirit in business leaders of the future, the round-the-clock-challenge saw Toni's team come up with an idea for a new mobile app which offers TV viewers further information about the programme they are watching.

Toni's team called 'Peak' wowed the judges with their app and received £2,500 in seed capital to pursue their idea.

Toni, who did a full years Erasmus placement at UCB is now back at the University of Siena, where he is completing his Masters Degree in Accounting and Management, but plans to return to the UK soon to work with his team on bringing their winning idea to life.
