Our prototyping week journey at Twente University continues.
The entrepreneurs teams have already spent three days in the University! They explored the amazing facilities and enjoyed the atmosphere working with the university students.
After the First Day, the second was such an energetic day. After the morning session, where Violeta and Michi guided the students in the process of developing their projects, and building the business plan.
Afterwards, we had many visits from the special staff DesignLab, and the volunteer students from the university to help our students execute their prototypes.
The university students offered their cooperation and support to the teams, and helped them design, program, and develop their concepts.
We had a nice surprise for the teams, and they had to do their first mini pitch that same day after lunch! They had limited time to prepare themselves, and test the feeling of the stage and audience.
The teams were excited to present their projects for the first time.
The first round was a new and exciting experience for them, and as we hoped, it made them more excited for their first full pitch the next day.
What is staying in a university campus without a cool party?
After a hard workday, all the participants and DELITELABS team deserved a treat. We all knew that the next day will be intensive and indeed, it was.
We had to make the best of the big day on Thursday; all the teams were ready to start the day at 9 sharp!
Violeta and Michi were working with the teams on their pitches the whole day. There was a lot to be done during the day, and they had to apply all the time management tools they learned during the course.
The teams needed to provide quality work more than ever, because at 5:30 they all have to practice to pitch their full projects for the first time.
The office was like a beehive, there was a lot to be done and we have to make it on time. Each team choose specific times to work with the trainers, and tension was high. Nonetheless, affectivity and quality work was provided by the big team.
Maddi, one of DELITELABS students took the lead and introduced DELITELABS to the audience, after introducing the team, the projects were presented one by one.
