A journey towards innovations

Since 2013, Innovate or die has been developing a platform for producing innovations. We organize nationwide innovation competitions, where goal-oriented university students from different fields of studies compete against each other – who will come up with the most innovative solutions to real life business challenges.

Through these years and experiments we have created a concept which enables amazing results and diverse innovations for companies, efficiently in a short period of time. For students, taking part in the process offers a highly engaging learning experience and opens doors to entrepreneurship and innovative thinking. We warmly welcome you to join the event and live through the experience with us!

Together We Can Achieve More

By the end of 2017, we’ve had the pleasure to work with development-oriented companies and the most motivated and ambitious students from universities around Finland and Barcelona. We are more eager than ever to offer you a chance to take part in this journey!

COMPANIES

Innovation is crucial to the continuing success of any organization. Have you ever wondered, what would happen, if you’d look at things from a very different perspective? We have created a concept to unite people with the desire to develop new ideas and make a difference.

Innovate or die offers your company a unique chance to receive concrete solutions to your current business challenges efficiently within 24 hours!
This intensive, communal experience takes place in November 2018.

How does it work? In Innovate or die we believe that innovations can be born in unexpected environments. Join the event and you’ll get a chance to work with teams of students from various backgrounds, fields of studies and even countries! To enable the the most creative innovations for your company, teams will take part in a coaching day and make research of your company beforehand. At the end of the process, you will receive 4-6 different solutions to bring in to use. The event is also a fantastic opportunity to network with like-minded and best-case scenario the collaboration with students can continue after the event. Take the next step and work with the creators of tomorrow!
