UT IdeaLab’s idea competition Kaleidoskoop brought together a record number of participants
The foreman of the jury, University of Tartu Vice Dean for Development Erik Puura mentions that he’d like to “Especially point out the student companies that have consulted with university’s scientists during the product development process. It shows that science-based ideas are already accepted in our schools as the fundamentals of a new entrepreneurship.”
Two best teams from Kaleidoskoop will go to Oulu to attend Polar Bear Pitching Competition – it’s an international start-up event where ideas are presented standing waist deep in the ice-cold water on a stage carved in the frozen sea!
Kaleidoskoop is the biggest youth project and business ideas competition in South-Estonia. This time it took place 7th time, bringing together the record number of participants – in the first round there were 42 teams competing! The judges in the finals were Erik Puura, the University of Tartu Vice Dean for Development; Siim Espenberg, the Chief Specialist in Business Development at the Tartu City Government; Kristian Sägi, a member of the Estonian Business Angels Network Estban; and Harri Tallinn, Manager of the Estonian biggest business idea competition Ajujaht.
Event is funded by European Social Fund.
