Competition is over – The journey in numbers!

The first step in Inwido Compete & Incubate Innovation Challenge is now over.

All teams made their final presentation last Thursday and now it’s up to Inwido to make the hard decisions – what entrepreneurs and ideas will they continue working with, and where will they put their investments?

We would like to thank all participants and we hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did. All ideas were documented in fantastic drawings by Erik Petri (www.erikpetri.dk) – which we will show you here on this webpage later.

We would like to sum it all up like this:

  • 16 business ideas thrown up in the air and pitched to Inwido’s board of managers.
  • 5 business critical challenges were defined by Inwido needing outside solutions, each competing for investment, glory and fame.
  • 50 enthusiastic entrepreneurs participating in Compete & Incubate Innovation Challenge.
  • Of those are about 50 percent Swedish and 50 percent from other countries.
  • 8 Thursdays have we met, discussed and analysed ideas, angles and business models.
  • 5 interesting and inspiring speakers have helped us on the way.
  • 4 experienced business developers from Ideon Innovation and ALMI have helped all entrepreneurs in the process.
  • 2 concrete business opportunities between existing incubator companies and Inwido and its suppliers
  • 1 lead between one Inwido supplier and Lund university for finding a solution on a tech issue
  • >100 hours have been spent in business coaching over 8 weeks
  • 8 of 22 ideas are from other countries
  • An infinite amount of coffee mugs have touched our lips.

Once again – thanks for the ride! We’ll get back to you when Inwido has made its decision.
