After 2016, big changes and decisions were made. A fresh and ambitious project group was formed and the year of 2017 developed to become the biggest success in Innovate or die’s history. Overwhelming amount of 220 students and even two teams of university teachers participated the event. Cases solved: 11.
In 2016, the team was facing some big decisions after graduation. What is the future of Innovate or die and in which direction will we go? In the end, the answer was easy and the only way was to keep moving forward. Once again we had the most amazing time working with talented students and fantastic companies in Himos, Jämsä. Overall six different companies presented their current challenges to students that came from four different universities.
Due to an excellent breakthrough in the previous year, 2015 started with a fast pace. We started to work in all-compassing way with several companies that found out the potential of Innovate or die. We had the pleasure to keep working with four companies that took part in the previous event. The event expanded in the university field as well. In 2015, seven different universities took part in the event and offered their students a chance to practice innovating, team work and presentation skills by solving real life business cases.
In 2014, we wanted to kick it up a notch and aimed to fully operate nationwide. The location of the main event changed to Himos, since it was the perfect location for students to attend the event from all over Finland. In this year, Innovate or die got the chance to work with companies from very different fields. Overall six companies presented their current challenges that needed some fresh, out of the box views. We had the honor to collaborate with students coming from six different universities.
In 2013, the journey of Innovate or die started in Peurunka, Laukaa. The first universities participating the event were Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences and University of Jyväskylä. 100 students from different fields attended the event and made it all possible! Jyväskylä-oriented teams were solving five different cases. Four local companies and one nationwide company, Hartwall.
Innovate or die 2018 is on its way!
