6. InnoEvent Tampere 2018 is searching for volunteers!

InnoEvent Tampere is a week-long innovation competition, which brings together company representatives and students from the three universities of Tampere. The event provides both the companies and the students with unique opportunities for networking and learning. During the event over 700 multidisciplinary student teams work to come up with solutions for the clients’ real life business questions and problems. Coaches and company representatives are there to guide the student teams along the way. On Pitch ‘n’ Party Friday the student teams will get to pitch their new and innovative ideas and solutions to a team of judges. Best ideas will be awarded with 1000 euros at the Gala held on Friday night.

For the background of this event we are searching for people, who would hold the whole thing together for the event week. These people, volunteers, would work together with the project team to ensure that for example the preparation of the event venue, VIP-lounges, video and audiotech and everything else that you could run into in event production would work swimmingly. And the best thing here is, that no kind of special skills are needed, attitude is what counts! For their trouble the volunteers get a unique chance to network with students of three universities, get a inside view to event producing and earn a couple student credits (1-4 ECTS). And most importantly, have loads of of fun and unforgettable experiences!

The event will be held 05.11.18 - 09.11.18. If you got interested, you'll find more information here. There you'll also find how to sign up for volunteering. Also, we are happy to answer any questions sent to volunteers@innoevent.fi
