Learning programme and mentorship where high schools, higher degree training cycles and university students will be required to respond to the challenges presented by various companies and create a prototype that will be defended at the iFest Demo Day.
The learning method cognition is based on the principles of entrepreneurship and disruption in innovation. The method is structured in 4 phases:
1. Problem Reformulation
2. Idea Generation
Throughout the programme, exponential technologies and knowledge of the enterprising ecosystem will be taught in training material, mentorship, activities and resources throughout Catalan territory.
Exponential technologies are dramatically changing our society and the way that people live.
As part of the learning process webinar conferences will be held by experts in various fields, such as IOT, Nanotechnology, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Blockchain among others. These sessions will allow players to know these technologies and apply them to their projects.
In Catalonia we have one of the most dynamic entrepreneurship ecosystems in the world…and this is because we have a set of diverse organizations and actors who, through their activity, promote and nurture the birth of startups and boost the attraction of investment and talent in the territory. iFest young people will know this reality thanks to some of the protagonists in this ecosystem who will accompany them in this entrepreneurial process: incubators, accelerators, startups, makers, meetups, corporates, ventures builders, fablabs, coders, universities, research centres, etc.
During the work using the iFest method, participants will have mentoring professionals from various fields and sectors available. These mentors will add value to the projects with their knowledge and expertise.
The great moment in which each team will have to defend its project through the presentation of its prototypes and thus compete with the other participants.
