Nothing limited the Demola students teams that pitched their innovative ideas in early April in Tampere. Co-creation teams’ ideas ranged from “Predictive care of the future” to managing multi-channel customer service.
Since Fall 2016, selected Demola teams have benefited from TEQMINE’s early-stage invention review solutions.
“Getting proper evaluation and feedback of their early stage ideas, as well as solid guidance about further development, is really important for the student teams,” says Ville Korpiluoto, the Head of Demola Tampere. “Besides, the teams learn about cutting-edge approach to assess ideas professionally, and that’s an important part of our mission of training students to be future technology and business professionals with an startup mind-set.”
A key activity for Demola is to offer university students a unique opportunity to add some real-life twist into the conventional path towards a career. In Demola programme, students work in a project with a multidisciplinary team solving real-life cases together with partner companies, just like early-stage startups.
“Supporting creative minds without distracting and boring them with traditional patent lingo is important for TEQMINE’s vision of Artificial Intelligence solutions in patent and technology space”, says Hannes Toivanen, CEO of TEQMINE. “Working with Demola’s innovative student teams falls squarely within our mission to empower early-stage innovators without making a fuss.”
Demola is a leading European innovation ecosystem, whose key activity is to foster student-led innovation teams and early-stage-startups. It is an international organization with locations across Europe and South Africa that facilitates co-creation projects between university students and companies, either locally or internationally.
