Take on the challenge with our partners like Huawei in Tech Challenge

„Tech Challenge was a great experience, for sure! We learned a lot about ideation and how to find an idea that is actually valuable. We definitely learned that the “problem/solution finding” is way more difficult than expected and that it is important to take a lot of time for thinking, discussing and trying out ideas.“

Questions? Answers!

When will the challenges be announced?

The challenges will be announced at the Kick-Off event, so don’t miss it! Also, we are going to post some spoilers on Slack and our Facebook page.

Can I do this course on my own?

Nope! You need to form an interdisciplinary team of 3-4 students. We’ll help with that at the beginning of the course.

Will I learn how to write a business plan?

Yes, of course! But keep in mind that the business plan is only the last step of a long journey, and that we focus way more on hands-on and real-life experiences than theory.
