Prague, March 8, 2024 

A group of Anglo-American University (AAU) students recently demonstrated their entrepreneurial prowess by clinching first place in the JA Czech Top Project competition for undergraduate entrepreneurship projects. The winning entry, a travel app called DIVEIN, triumphed over 20 other projects, securing recognition from a 19-member jury at the end of February. 

This marks the second year in a row AAU students have taken first place at such an event, with a team of five having claimed the top prize at last year’s JACzech Startup Competition for their List-N-Eat catering app. 

Reflecting on this remarkable consecution, President Jiří Schwarz expressed pride in the victory, stating: “With this year’s success, our students have confirmed that entrepreneurship is in their DNA.”

The winning DIVEIN app, which was developed by the student start-up of the same name, is designed to provide travelers with reliable information regarding their chosen destinations. It addresses the common issues encountered when using generic and untrustworthy AI-generated itineraries and instead provides users with human-verified, personalized recommendations for a more authentic travel experience. 

Junior Achievement Czech Republic (JACzech), which organized the competition, is the Czech representative of Junior Achievement, the largest and oldest economic education organization in the world and 2024 Nobel Peace Prize nominee. JACzech has been instrumental in shaping the entrepreneurial thinking and financial literacy of young people in the country for three decades. Recognition by so prestigious an organization serves to validate the work done by the DIVEIN team.

The team will next go on to compete in the JA Top Project competition at the national level later this year. To support the continued growth and development of the DIVEIN application, go here
