Stimulate entrepreneurship among young people under 30 years old, increase awareness about the new economic models (circular, cooperative and collaborative) and support the creation of projects in these models, promote the newly created technical hub of Ustart and leverage their technical expertise to create innovative solutions with new technologies.
The impact challenge gathered almost 60 individuals around 11 projects. The 11 teams co-created each an entrepreneurial project during one weekend based on ideas that were pitched at the first night. The teams were coached by experts in the new economic models in order to make their idea as sustainable as possible.
57 individuals were educated about the new economic models and collaborated on 11 projects. Thanks to the rewards delivered to the winning teams, some of the start up created their legal structure and are now having their first clients.
