Join eXpression Ideation 2018!

In our creative workshop series, students get to test and develop entrepreneurial skills - working together in teams from all disciplines across Umeå university.

As a participant you will go from meeting your team for the first time to collaborative idea generation, market verification and finally pitch together - in only a few weeks.

This accelerated process gives you the opportunity to see what an entrepreneurial process might look like. Every workshop has a different theme, which you will take on with the support of experts in each field. 

In the lineup are entrepreneurial experts like Hyper Island and EoE Glasses, ready to share their expertise. 

You get to generate ideas in teams, use relevant tools, build your entrepreneur network across the university, make connections within the incubator eXpression Umeå and pitch for the chance to win 6000 SEK.

We start by diving into the topic of the semester and while you and your team will get hands-on experience with the process you will also learn tools for idea generation, teamwork and pitch. The workshops are mainly held at night, to not interfere with your studies. Make sure the workshop schedule works for YOU.

Take this opportunity to get acquainted with the entrepreneurial process, connect with other students with the same drive - and get to know Umeå’s most creative incubator and the programs available for early stage entrepreneurs.

Attendees are required to participate on 4 of 5 meets. Note that you should be a student at Umeå university to participate. The workshops are held in English.
