BetaTeam is always inspired by the latest technology trends and on-going innovation. The team members always seek to try and learn how to integrate these cutting-edge technologies with what they develop. This is the second time for the team to compete in Imagine Cup as they have achieved 2nd place in the regional competition of Imagine Cup in Middle East and Africa 2015 that was hosted in Bahrain. However, this time they are returning way stronger with more passion and willingness to compete globally.
