How can we enable students to design their solutions and accelerate their projects based on the principles of innovation?
We facilitated a 1-day hackathon where students could meet each other, share their ideas and develop a first proof-of-concept with the support of innovation experts. We came with 6 facilitators and invited the students to pitch their project (if they had one). We created the teams and assigned one of our experts to facilitate the collective intelligence process. At the end of the competition, the best project was given an award.
5 high-potential projects were conceived and a group of students gained first-hand experience about how they could use business concepts to have a positive impact on society.
