Testimonials

Our participation in Innobator competition was the golden step towards where we are today as a team. The competition gave us the support and guidance to make our idea into reality, which is the hardest stage at any innovational goal. The positive compliments we heard from judges and advisors motivated us to become stronger and believe in ourselves and that our idea is a future-change maker. At first, our idea was just a course project, but now it’s one of the unique solutions that will be presented at the Swedish pavilion , expo 2020.

Our experience in the Innobator competition was great, the competition allowed us to extend our understanding about the design thinking process and to connect with a supervisor who is experienced in the state of art of the project idea. The information, comments and critiques provided by the supervisor enhanced our idea further. We did an extensive search to gather information related to the competitors, prices and marketing when we created our business plan, which is a primary reason behind any idea to be successful. It was an honor for us to participate and to be successful in the Innobator competition
