Basic event structure
Innovate or die in numbers
We have organized Innovate or die – competitions since 2013. To this day we’ve had four events in Finland and two in Barcelona. We have shared this journey with amazing companies, universities and students. As an experimentation most of the universities have created a course around the Innovate or die competition. In these universities it has been possible to receive academic credits for participating in Innovate or die. How cool is that?!

What the participants have to say about Innovate or die?
It was fun way to learn new methods to innovate. My team even manage to win the challenge presented. I would definitely participate again!
IOD was whole new experience and I learned a lot from it. I learned a lot about pitching and how to produce ideas in very fast pace. I would recommend IOD to my friends!
As an experience Innovate or die! were excellent and I will recommend it to my friends. Studying would be a lot different if most of the courses would be executed with learning by doing method.
