A two day innovation event with real business challenges
Join STHEC – An event where students across different universities and universities of applied sciences work in interdisciplinary teams and solve real challenges provided by Wärtsilä and partners.
During the competition, each team will come up with a product, service or business idea as an answer to their challenge in question. What you create and how you make this happen is up to you! The teams will compete against other groups within the competition ecosystem consisting of customers, service designers, facilitators, coaches and of course, the judges (sharks). The event final will include each team pitching their ideas to” the sharks”, who will both challenge the ideas and offer feedback. In the end, the overall winning team will receive a grand price. Other teams will also be rewarded based on success in different categories. This will for sure be worth your time!
The event location will be Wasa Innovation Center (Gerbyntie 16, 65230 Vaasa) where transportation is provided by Wärtsilä. Participation will be free for all students and we will also offer food and beverages for the participants during the event days. This event is arranged in collaboration with our partners Vaasan Sähkö, City of Vaasa and University of Vaasa.
