At the InnoDays, everyone comes together to create something new – no matter if you are an entrepreneurial student, designer, engineer or business leader. The InnoDays is where you’ll turn ideas into prototypes in 48 hours.
Given the uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ll decide on April 15 whether (1) we’ll bring the InnoDays Vienna online (if our virtual InnoDays Berkeley experiment goes well), (2) postpone the event, or (3) follow through.
Get fresh ideas by opening up your innovation efforts to co-create new products, services and business models with external innovators.
There’s no shortage of new ideas. But ideas are worthless without execution. Receive tangible prototypes for your challenges from multiple teams
Access to talent
Identify the best participants to collaborate or hire. By mentoring the teams you will see who is a good fit for your needs.
Innovation is something you get better by doing it. This is your opportunity to gain hands-on experience by solving critical challenges.
Learn with others
Work in a team with different skillsets and mindsets to come up with innovative solutions. You’ll receive mentoring by inspirational leaders.
Interact with companies to explore career opportunities and build your network. The best ideas get the company partner’s support to make your idea happen.
You need to take 3 steps to get ready for the InnoDays before 26 April.
Understand the challenges of our company partners and study the context, the company, and their customers.
At the InnoDays you can either pitch your own idea or join a team. To register everyone has to introduce themselves in a short video (max. 2 min) with an idea (if you’ll pitch) or an insight relevant for a challenge (if you’ll join a team).
Select your favorite challenge during online registration. Teams are formed based on the best ideas, mixing skills and your challenge preference.
From 13-15 May you have 48 hours to turn your idea into a prototype.
