No limits. Just great ideas.
Ideation is a series of workshops for students. Through creative processes, the workshops allow you to generate, communicate and develop your ideas. Here you get to test your entrepreneurial skills and work in teams with participants from different disciplines at Umeå University.
The workshops give insight into the entrepreneurial process, what it could look like and which ways it might take. Each session has a dedicated theme, and an expert on the topic helps to support to develop your idea.
You and your team will get to try out idea generation, market verification, and pitching in front of a jury.
