WHAT? smellino_gruppe
The WIRTSCHAFTSGEIST-Workshop provides a platform for students to meet social entrepreneurs. Together, they work on a real-life challenge with focus on social innovation.

The workshop creates a win-win situation for all parties involved: while students gain insight to social entrepreneurship, start-ups benefit from the students’ creative problem-solving abilities.

Each start-up gets together with an interdisciplinary group of students to work on a real-life challenge defined by the start-up. Approaches from different disciplines are combined while working on the challenge. An innovation coach helps the teams with valuable input and creativity methods, in order to optimize the results.

Friday, November 10, 2017, 11.00 am to 4 pm
Performancesaal of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, Reiterkaserne Ground Floor, Leonhardstraße 82-84, 8010 Graz
