Innovation Challenge Calling all Students

25 students needed to take part in Innovation Challenge

What is Innovation Challenge?

Innovation Challenge revolves around a one day event which is organised in Co-operation with Junior Achievement Young Enterprise, Metropolia Business School and Microsoft Finland.

What happens in Innovation Challenge?

Microsoft will provide students with the opportunity to solve a real life challenge that they are currently facing. Students will form into teams and come up with a solution to the challenge and present it. Teachers will be on hand to provide guidance together with a Microsoft business consultant. A winning team will be chosen and awarded prizes.

What will I gain from the experience?

Apart from the great experience of working on a real life business challenge and receiving feedback you will also gain the following:

  • 1 Credit
  • understand how to develop a business idea from concept to execution
  • improve presentations skills and develop an elevator pitch
  • the experience of working with Microsoft
  • prizes (for the winning team)
