What are the Innovation Labs?

You don’t get to 1 million users just by writing code! It’s time to go beyond your computer screen, get out of your comfort zone and change the world!

Join us for Innovation Labs 2.0 to learn how to innovate, disrupt and turn your idea into a successful startup! Register here for the Innovation Labs Hackathons!

What, when, where?

Between the 1st of March and the 23rd of May 2014, with kick-off events:

Bucharest Hackathon:

1-2 March – inside Politehnica University of Bucharest

Cluj-Napoca Hackathon:

8 – 9 March, inside Liberty Technology Park

Step 1: The hackathon

Each hackathon starts with a pitching session where you get to present your idea in front of the audience. Teams are organically formed around the most appreciated ideas.

You then have 24 hours to build your MVP and develop your business concept under the close guidance of entrepreneurs, tech specialists and industry leaders that will be your mentors.

In the end you’ll pitch your product in front of a jury and the best 26 teams will continue with the pre-acceleration program!

Step 2: The program

From March to May you will develop your product together with exceptional mentors and guest speakers. You will attend TechTalks and mentoring sessions that will help you find solutions to the problems you face as a young entrepreneur and will support you in your efforts of building a viable product.

Here you’ll find out more about customer discovery and validation, marketing and communication for startups, business models, sales, pitching, and financing. All in all, you’ll learn what it takes to build an innovative tech product with disruptive potential.

Step 3: Boost Day

In April you get to show us your progress by pitching your product in front of the audience. You’ll receive feedback and expert advice that will keep you on the right track and will help you grow faster!

Step 4: Demo Day

At the end of the program you will attend the final Demo Day where you will pitch in front of investors. We have prepared prizes and special awards for the best teams.

What’s next?

It’s up to you! We will continue supporting you and your startup! Do you have THE idea that can change the world? Register now and join us for the Innovation Labs 2.0 hackathons!
