StudentIdé is a new collaboration between Sparebanken Vest and Bergen Teknologioverføring. Its ambition is to stimulate more students in Bergen to innovate, and the competition is a celebration of all the good initiatives from the student community in the city.
The competition seems to be popular as BTO received 22 applications before the deadline 31st December 2017. 16 applications came from students from the University of Bergen, three from NHH Norwegian School of Economics students and two applications came from students at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL).
An internal jury at BTO has pre-qualified the ten best ideas for the final. The students behind these ideas will present their idea in front of an experienced jury and a live audience. The jury will select the winner based on novelty, impact on society, potential use and probability of success. The winner takes it all – 50 000 NOK!
You are invited to the finale
The final event is open to everyone with an interest in entrepreneurship and innovation. We especially urge students and employees at the universities and colleges in Bergen to join the finale and cheer for their candidates. Come to get inspired by the innovative student ideas!
The event will take place at Bergen Teknologioverførings headquarters at Thormøhlensgate 51 (in the same building as VilVite, second floor) on the 25th January, 17:00-19:00 pm.
There will be food and drinks, so remember to sign up.
