DM i Entreprenørskab: en lærerig rutsjebanetur

For English version, please scroll down. 

12 udvalgte teams fra landets korte og mellemlange videregående uddannelser tog en tur i den følelsesmæssige rutsjebane, da de onsdag d. 27/5 deltog i DM i Entreprenørskab. Med pitchen lige på tungen og præsentationerne klar i hånden, var de nominerede mere end klar til at overbevise dommerne og de besøgende om, at de var den bedste blandt de bedste.

Lige så snart man træder ud af Københavns hovedbanegård, kan man høre en jagende lyd af skrig og hvin, der med korte intervaller kommer og går.  Langt skal der ikke kigges for at finde de kørende rutsjebaner i Københavns Tivoli, og synderen bag de systematiske udbrud af spænding og glæde. Men følelsen og oplevelsen af at sidde i en rutsjebane havde onsdag d. 27/5 sneget sig ud af tivoliportene og infiltrerede for en kort stund Dansk Erhvervs lokaler i Børssalen. For den høje puls, spændingen, adrenalinkicket og svingningerne i følelserne, der normalt er karakteristika for de vilde forlystelsers passagerer, kunne i den grad også findes hos de studerende, der deltog til Danmarksmesterskabet i Entreprenørskab.

”Det er som at sidde i en rutsjebane,” fortæller Eva Ostermann fra team ’ADESU’, om hendes oplevelse og den følelse, hun havde ved deltagelsen til Danmarksmesterskabet i Entreprenørskab.

Med et hårdt program i sigte, der bestod af lukkede dommerinterviews, stand besøg fra både dommere og besøgende samt finale pitch på scenen, var det ikke et under, at det havde føltes som at sidde i en rutsjebane. Man skulle også tro at programmet for dagen også ville svøbe sig som et udmattende tæpper om de studerende, men dette var ikke tilfældet ifølge Mike Pryssing fra team ’Chifibo’, der fortæller;

”Den ’stress’ og spænding, der hører med til at være selvstændig og til sådanne events som DM, er sgu også fed. F.eks. på sådan en dag som i dag, hvor det hele – følelser og pulsen – kører op og ned med dagen. Hvor man får pulsen oppe at køre i et kort stykke tid, men så får man lov til at falde til ro, for så at få pulsen til at køre op igen, og sådan fortsætter den bare hele dagen. Det giver en et ’kick’, og det er vildt fedt!”  

 Fra nervepirrende spænding til energisk ro

”Jeg tror først, at det gik op for mig i går, da vi ankom til vores hotel, at det er i dag, at det hele går løs. Så blev man selvfølgelig lidt nervøs, inden man skulle sove. Lige nu og her, er det faktisk rigtig fedt. Men til at starte med, da vi stod inde hos juryen, var det selvfølgelig lidt nervepirrende,” fortæller Nicolai Rantzau fra team ’Chifibo’

De sitrende nerver, der havde meldt deres ankomst dagen før DM og hang ved til de lukkede dommerinterviews, blev dog for en kort stund begravet i maven med frokostsandwichen, og de studerende endelig kunne finde roen til at nyde eventet og deres omgivelser.

”Jeg er fuld af god energi. Det er simpelthen så spændende at være her. Det er spændende at se de andres projekter, men også spændende at snakke med de forskellige besøgende, der kommer hen og lige vil høre lidt nærmere til vores ideer og projekter,” fortæller Charlotte Lindberg fra team ’Tabt Barndom’, med et kæmpe smil på læben.

Med blod på tanden, iværksætterlysten ved hjertet og kompasset rettet mod fremtiden

”Vi skal ud i verden. Vi har en prototype klar til at blive udgivet, og vi har planer om, uanset hvordan det går i dag, at få udgivet ’Chifibo’” fortæller team ’Chifibo’.

Team ’Chifibo’ er ikke de eneste, der har i sinde at føre deres ide ud i virkeligheden. Det ser heller ikke ud til at nogle af de andre deltageres ideer kun forbliver på tegnebrættet efter DM i Entreprenørskab. Der var stor enighed blandt de adspurgte om, at deres ideer og virksomheder skulle realiseres. Og da de blev spurgt ind til, hvor de var på vej hen efter DM, var svaret entydigt og højlydt, ”fremad!”

”Min ide er på vej videre. Jeg har fået ’blod på tanden’, så min ide og virksomhed skal realiseres. Jeg håber snart på at kunne komme i gang med at få bygget mit videobibliotek op og skal til forskellige workshops her i den kommende tid, hvor jeg får mulighed for at komme i dialog med potentielle kunder. Så jeg glæder  mig rigtig meget til at blive klogere på den del af det,” fortæller Charlotte fra ’Tabt Barndom’, mens Dharsan Rayapthanyan fra team ’ADESU’ fortæller;

”Vores virksomhed er på vej ud i virkeligheden. Vi skulle meget gerne komme med en funktionel prototype til efteråret, hvor den også skal testet. Personligt er vi på vej hen i mod at være selvstændige. Vi regner stærkt med at skulle starte egen virksomhed op og gå videre med vores ide. Ikke kun for at tjene penge, men også fordi vi vil og tror på, at vi kan bidrage til en løsning på et problem, der er på sygehusene.”

 At vokse med opgaven

Dagens program fik dog alligevel sat dets præg på de studerende, der sidst på dagen måtte tage deres reserveenergikilder i brug – hvad enten det var de indre kilder eller de eksterne i form af diverse energidrikke. Tips til forretningsplanlægning og pitchpræsentationer var ikke det eneste de studerende kunne tage med hjem fra deres deltagelse i DM og Start Up Programme. Hertil fortæller Natalia Danihelová fra team ’Book a student’;

”Det har været alle tiders at have deltaget i DM og Start Up Programme. Vi kan virkelig se og føle, at vi er vokset – ikke kun som virksomhed, men også personligt. Selve eventet og processen op til DM har skubbet os imod handling på vores ide og gjort os mere motiveret, end hvad vi var i forvejen. Så det har virkeligt været fedt! Vi vil helt sikkert tage den gode følelse og oplevelse samt alle de forbindelser og netværk, vi har fået herfra, med os.”

Tabt Barndom ved stand

”Start Up Programme har været en kæmpe hjælp i min iværksætterproces indtil videre. Det har været en kæmpe hjælp at få sat tid af samt deadline over f.eks. færdiggørelsen af forretningsplaner. Det har nemlig været en af de ting, som jeg har skubbet foran mig. Det er et hårdt arbejde at få styr på alt det, en forretningsplan skal indebære, og at få skrevet alle de ting ned – men det har været og er jo en vigtig del af processen. Så jeg føler, at jeg er kommet rigtig langt og er blevet meget mere klar til sådan at møde første kunde nu her,” fortæller Charlotte fra ’Tabt Barndom’, mens Mike fra team ’Chifibo’ fortæller;

”Vi kan tage alt med fra vores deltagelse og processen, vi har været igennem – især oplevelsen. Man vokser virkelig med opgaven. For 4 måneder siden, så troede jeg slet ikke, at jeg skulle stå her, eller at vi skulle være så tæt på vores mål om at få udgivet ’Chifibo’.”

Dagen for de studerende sluttede dog ikke ved kåring og præmieoverrækkelserne, for med præmierne uddelt og standene pakket sammen, gik turen videre til ’afterparty’ på Ruby Cocktail Bar, hvor dagen blev fejret.

The Danish Championship in Entrepreneurship – an educational roller coaster

On Wednesday 27th May, 12 nominated teams from the higher educations in Denmark went for an emotional roller coaster ride, when they participated in the Danish Championship in Entrepreneurship. With memorized pitches and presentation ready, the nominated students were more than ready to convince the judges as well as the visiting guests that they were the best among all the talented teams.

A periodical sound of screams and squeals can be heard, as soon as you step out from Copenhagen Central Station and you don’t have to look far, to find the roller coasters of the Tivoli Gardens as well as the culprit behind the outbursts of excitement.  The feeling and experience of riding a roller coaster had Wednesday the 27th May snuck out the Tivoli Gardens’ gates and infiltrated the Danish Chambers of Commerce’s Royal Exchange.

The accelerated pulse rate, the adrenaline rush and the swinging emotions that normally can be found in passengers of a roller coaster ride, could that day also be found in the students, who participated in the Danish Championship in Entrepreneurship.

“It feels like riding a roller coaster,” Eva Ostermann from team ‘ADESU’ says, as she describes her experience and feelings participating in the Danish Championship.

Stemning_1

Since the program of the day consisted of, a closed jury interview, visits from judges and other guests as well as a final pitch on stage, it was no small wonder that the day had felt like a roller coaster ride. One might be lead to believe that the programme would result in a lot of exhausting students, but that wasn’t the case according to Mike Pryssing from team ‘Chifibo’, who says;

“The ‘stress’ and excitement that are a part of being entrepreneurs and events like the Danish Championship, are also some of the things that are great about participating in an event like this and they’re also some of the things that I find alluring in entrepreneurship. I for instance find a day such as today – where one’s feelings and pulse rate rise and fall with the hectic program – really great and I just get a ‘kick’ out of it.”

 From nerve-racking excitement to energetic calmness

“I think that it was yesterday, when we arrived at our hotel where I realised that we were going to participate in the Danish Championship. I of course got a little nervous just before going to bed, but today – right here and now – I actually feel great. Though I must admit that it was a bit nerve-racking in the beginning, at the closed jury interviews,” says Nicolai Rantzau from team ‘Chifibo’.

The trembling nerves that arrived the day before the Danish Championship and stayed until the closed jury interviews were soon buried with the lunch, and the students could finally find the calmness within to enjoy their surroundings and the event.

“I’m full of good energy. It’s just so exciting to be here today. It’s not only intriguing to hear about the other participants’ projects, but also very exciting to talk with the different guests, who wants to hear a little bit more about our projects and ideas,” Charlotte Lindberg from team ‘Tabt Barndom’ says with a big smile on her lips.

 Towards the future with entrepreneurship as a compass

“We have a prototype of our app ready to be published and we’re planning to get it published, regardless of today’s outcome,” says team ‘Chifibo’

Team ‘Chifibo’ aren’t the only ones, who intend to realise their ideas. There was agreement among the interviewed students that their idea’s journey wasn’t over, after the Danish Championship.

“I’ve got a taste of entrepreneurship and want more, so I’m definitely going to realise my idea and business. I hope that I soon can build and work on the video-library. I’m actually going to participate in a couple of different workshops, where I’ll get the opportunity to speak with potential customers. I can’t wait to learn more about that part of establishing a business as well,” says Chalotte from ‘Tabt Barndom’, while Dharsan from team ‘ADESU’ tells us that;

“Our company is on its way to become realised. Our prototype should be up and running as well as tested this autumn. We’re personally on our way to become self-employed and we expect to start our own company with our idea – not only to make money, but also because we strongly believe that we can contribute with a solution to a problem that occurs in the hospitals.”

 To grow with the task

Despite being full of positive energy, the program of the day still took its toll on the students, who at the end of the day needed their energy reserves – whether it was in form of inner energy or energy drinks. Tips and trick to business plans and pitch presentations were not the only things the students could take with them from their participation in the Danish Championship and Start Up Programme. Natália Danihelová from team ’Book a student’ for instance says;

“It has been great experience participating in the Danish Championship and Start Up Programme. We can really see and feel how much we’ve grown – not only as a company, but also personally. The event and process up to the event has pushed us towards action. It has pushed us to do something and become more motivated, than what we already were. So it has been really great! We’re definitely going to bring, the good feeling and all the connections we’ve made during this event, with us.”     

Tabt Barndom ved stand

“Start Up Programme has been a huge help in my entrepreneurship process until now. For instance was the business plan one o the things I had pushed a bit aside. So it has been a great help to get a deadline and by that pushed to finish it. It has taken a lot of effort and hard work to get the business plan written and done, but that has also been an important part of the process, and as a result I feel like I’ve come a really long way, in my process of establishing my company and realising my idea as well as become more than ready to meet my first customers, ” says Charlotte from ‘Tabt Barndom’, while Mike from ‘Chifibo’ tells us that;

“We can take everything from this event and the process we’ve been through with us – especially the experience. If it was 4 months ago, I wouldn’t have believed that we would be standing here today or that we would be so close to publish ‘Chifibo’.”

The students didn’t end the day with the with the award ceremony though. With everything packed and done, the students moved on to the after party at Ruby Cocktail Bar, where the day was celebrated.

”Deltagelsen i Start Up Programme har blandt andet lært mig at skabe stor kundeværdi samt, hvad der skal overvejes, når man snakker om B2B eller B2C. En anden ting, jeg har lært, er helt klart pitching!” fortæller Neculai.      

 

Chifibo

Datamatikerstuderende Mike Pryssing og multimediadesignstuderende Nicolai Rantzau tager barnets første bog med ind i den digitale verden. De vil med en app gøre det nemt og bekvemt for forældre at lave barnets første bog, hvor det vil være muligt at bestille en fysisk udgave, når bogen er færdig.

20150512_110718

”Vi har af Start Up Programme forløbet lært rigtig meget omkring entreprenørskab og innovation. F.eks. at skrive en god forretningsplan, pitche fornuftigt, arbejde under stort pres samt det, at man ikke nødvendigvis behøves at opfinde ’den dybe tallerken’ igen. Me, at man også kan tage noget, der eksisterer i forvejen og tilkoble noget nyt. Derudover har vi lært at arbejde på tværs af vores uddannelser. Vi har igennem forløbet lært at udnytte de to forskellige uddannelser, vi kommer fra,” fortæller Mike og Nicolai.

 

Smart Ride

Multimediastuderende Edita Valantiejute og programmør Edmundas Valantiejute vil skabe en alt-i-én løsning for taxavirksomheder, private taxaer og passagerer ved at forbinde dem gennem en platform. Her vil forbrugeren med en app eller hjemmeside blandt andet kunnet bestille en taxa fra det pågældende lands taxavirksomheder, såvel som private taxachauffører.

”Vores deltagelse i Start Up Programme har givet os mulighed for at træne og udvikle vores evner i pitching. Til at begynde med tilbød Start Up Programme pitch-træning i Aarhus, hvor vi blandt andet fik en masse informationer omkring, hvordan man pitcher. D. 4/5 skulle alle teams så pitche deres ide samt gennemgå et interview med juryen, hvor vi fik feedback omkring, hvad der f.eks. kunne forbedres til DM.
Derudover har hele processen og deltagelsen været en rigtig god oplevelse,”
fortæller Edita og Edmindas.

 

Sundhed & Velfærd

ADESU

Ingeniørstuderende i velfærdsteknologi Dharsan Rayapthanyan og ergoterapeutstuderende Eva Ostermann vil ikke kun spare tid og penge for både hospitaler og deres patienter, men også give dem fordele. ADESU er en kompakt, hygiejnisk og lugtfri skraldespand, der vejer, måler og komprimerer engangsmaterialer på sygehuse.

”Start Up Programme har lært mig, hvordan man skal håndtere forskellige problemstillinger med forretningsudvikling og salg af vores ide. En ide kan være god, men uden en forretningsmæssig sammenhæng kan det være svært at realisere” siger  Dharsan.

”Det har overrasket mig positivt, hvor nemt det er at søge råd og vejledning om iværksætteri. Vi er blevet mødt med åbne arme af en række kompetente mennesker, der har prøvet at stå der, hvor vi er nu,” tilføjer Eva.

 

Tabt Barndom

Designstuderende Charlotte Lindberg og mediegrafikerstuderende Mette Stribolt, multiplatform, vil øge livskvalitet og indsigt i egne handlemuligheder til mennesker, der har været udsat for seksuelle overgreb. I form af et gratis online, helhedsorienteret behandlingstilbud, skal ’Tabt Barndom’ være et redskab til at hjælpe mennesker, som har været udsat for seksuelle overgreb i barn- og/eller ungdommen.

”Deltagelsen i Start Up Programme har hjulpet mig med at blive mere fokuseret på, hvordan fremtiden konkret ser ud for den kommende virksomhed. Gennem arbejdet med forretningsplanen er fokus blevet flyttet fra idé til handling – og det har været en fed proces,” fortæller Charlotte.

Det har overrasket mig, hvor mange døre nomineringen til DM har åbnet. Seksuelle overgreb er stadig tabu for mange, men flere åbner op, fordi vi har fået anerkendelse fra Fonden for Entreprenørskab – Young Enterprise. Vi har f.eks. fået flere samarbejdspartnere, som gerne vil bidrage med deres faglighed og erfaring med området, og det er jo glædeligt, ” uddyber Charlotte.

 

Functional Electronic Medicine: F.E.M

F.E.M teamet består af multimediadesigner Anna-Kathrine Christensen, datamatikerstuderende Masseh Yar, jurastuderende Christoffer M. Jensen og lærerstuderende Florian Weissermar. Med en dispenser til flydende medicin, der måler den korrekte mængde medicin samt doserer det på det rigtig tidspunkt, vil de 4 studerende optimere borgernes livskvalitet og plejepersonalets arbejdsmiljø.

”Vores deltagelse i Start Up Programme har lært os, at man skal arbejde for, hvad man tror på, og at man ikke bare kan komme sovende til succes. Det har kostet sved og tårer for at komme til, hvor vi er nu. Så hvis man har en ide, hvorfor så ikke gøre den til virkelighed, mens man kan? Derudover har vi også lært at tage chancer, og at det kræver et super stærkt team for at få alt til at fungere – ingen af os ville have kunnet gjort noget af det vi har nu, på egen hånd. Start Up Programme har været en kæmpe hjælp for os, idet den har givet os mulighed og indsigt i, hvordan et samarbejde skal fungere,” siger team F.E.M.

 

Mennesker & Samfund

Big 8

I team Big 8 finder vi international marketing managementstuderende Barbora Peterikova og Yater Dabbo samt kokkene Aidan John Mckennan og Jens Christian Forsberg-Olesen. Med en samfunds- og fællesskabsbaseret platform og restaurant, vil Big 8 skabe et sikkert sted at spise for forbrugere med fødevareallergi, uden at de skal bekymre sig om deres allergi. Dette gør de blandt andet ved ikke at tage brug af de 8 største allergener; mælk, æg, gluten, soja, fisk, skaldyr, peanuts og nødder.  Big 8 fortæller;

fælles

”Det har været en rigtig god oplevelse at være en del af Start Up Programme. Konkurrenceprogrammet har givet os et nyt perspektiv på, hvordan det er at drive forretning. Vi har blandt andet lært og er blevet bedre til projektplanlægning og management. Vores deltagelse har også givet os mulighed for at gøre brug af al vores teoretiske viden fra vores uddannelser og omsætte det til et håndgribeligt projekt. Hvad enten vi vinder eller ej, har Start Up Programme givet os en kick-start på en spændende fremtid, og det har hjulpet os med at omfavne et nyt liv med spænding og mindre tid til at sove.”

 

Elevakademiet

Lærerstuderende Cecilie Rask og digitaldesignstuderende Christina Exner tror på, at det er motivationen, der driver elevernes læring. De vil derfor tilbyde privatundervisning, lektiehjælp og før-skole, der er baseret på elevernes interesse, faglige niveau og læringsstil. Med kvalitetsundervisning udført af lærerstuderende, er det ikke kun børnene, der vil få gavn af dette tilbud, men det vil også give lærerstuderende mulighed for at udfordre sig selv personligt og fagligt.

”Deltagelsen i Start Up Programme har gjort, at vi er blevet helt skarpe på at pitche samt på vores forretningsplan. Selvom vi havde en god forståelse af vores virksomhed, har det været en fordel at få alle vores tanker og ideer skrevet ned i en forretningsplan. Det har givet et større overblik over de kvaliteter, vores virksomhed besidder, ” fortæller Cecilie og Christina.

”Noget, der har overrasket os rigtig meget, er tiden. Vi har, skulle sætte meget tid af til at skrive forretningsplan og opbygge vores pitch. Dog har det været meget lærerigt, og nu hvor vi er ved at være i mål, kan vi virkelig se, hvor meget vi har udviklet os som virksomhed,” uddyber de to studerende.

De Rumlige Figurer

De to lærerstuderende Anders Holck Rasmussen og Nicolaj Khan Larsen vil med deres ide gøre timerne mere håndgribelige for eleverne. Dette vil de gøre ved at løfte pyramiden, kassen og resten af de rumlige figurer ud af geometri- og matematik bøgerne og producere dem i et skummateriale så de bliver mere virkelige for eleverne. Derudover vil de gøre IT til en stor del af undervisningen ved at forbinde figurerne med en app til opgaveløsning.

Anders og Nicolaj 2

”Vi har lært at tænke ud af boksen og gøre noget, som vi ikke havde troet, at vi kunne med vores uddannelse. Det ligger langt uden for vores kompetencer som lærere at skulle starte egen virksomhed, men det mener vi nu, at vi har fået gennem Start Up Programme. Vi blev overraskede over, hvor stor betydning pitching har. Derfor var det godt, at vi fik mulighed for at få en forsmag på DM til generalprøven ved INSERO,” fortæller Anders og Nicolaj.

 

Produkt og Teknologi

Gas2Green

Under uddannelse som dual purpose skibschef vil Rasmus Andreas Kunø Tarp, Uffe Wilken og Casper Ryborg Simmelsgaard vil udnytte og genanvende spildprodukt produceret af verdens mere end 25.000 skibe og kraftværker.

 

SSHW

Markedsføringsøkonomstuderende Usama Awad og maskiningeniørstuderende Ahmad Al-Kerdi udgør team SSHW. Ahmad og Usama vil udstyre dørlåse med et styresystem. Styresystemet vil, alt efter behov, give forbrugeren mulighed for at holde sig opdateret omkring, hvad der sker udenfor og ved døren via sin mobil – uanset hvor end man er i verden.

Usama og Ahmad2

”Forløbet i Start Up Programme har indtil videre lært os, hvordan vi skulle udvikle vores ide og produkt i forbindelse med at gøre den mere attraktiv for mulige investorer,” fortæller Usama og Ahmad.

Sculpto

Markedsføringsøkonomstuderende Kristina Villadsen, Simon Breum Fisker og Jacob Lindberg ved at børn er intuitive og hele tiden skifter interesse. Sculpto er en 3D-printer, der i samarbejde med en digital platform kan printe lige netop dét, som barnet ønsker at lege med. Derved vil den kunne følge barnets udvikling og samle familien om leg og læring.

 

Kunne du tænke dig at se mere til de entreprenante og innovative teams, kan du stadig nå at tilmelde dig som tilskuer til DM i Entreprenørskab. Men skynd dig, tilmeldingerne lukker nemlig tirsdag d. 26/5. Tilmed dig her.

“The participation in Start Up Programme has, among other things, taught me how to create strong customer value and what to consider when you’re working with B2B and B2C. In addition to this, pitching is also one of the things I’ve learned,” says Neculai.

 

Chifibo

Computer Science student Mike Pryssing and Multimedia Design student Nicolai Rantzau want to bring the baby’s first year book into the digital world. They’ll with an app make it easier for parents to make their own personal baby’s first year book, where they at the end will be able to order a hard copy of the book.

20150512_110718

“We’ve learnt a lot about entrepreneurship and innovation through the Start Up Programme process. We’ve for instance learnt how to write a good business plan, how to pitch and how to work under great pressure. In addition to that, we’ve also learnt that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, but your idea can also be rooted in and developed from something that already exists. We’ve furthermore learnt how to work across our studies. Through the process we’ve learnt how to utilize our knowledge within our different studies,” says Mike and Nicolai.

 

Smart Ride

Multimedia Design student Edita Valantiejute and programmer Edmundad Valantiejute want to create a all-in-one solution for taxi companies, private drivers and passengers, by linking them through a platform. The consumer will through an app or a website, for instance be able to book a taxi from all of the country’s taxi company or private driver.

“Our participation in Start Up Programme has given us the opportunity to train and develop our pitching skills. To begin with we were offered pitching training through Start Up Programme, where we got a lot of relevant information for instance about how to pitch and what a pitch should contain. This was a good and useful experience – not only for the Danish Championship, but also for the future. Later on the 4th May, every team pitched their idea to the jury as well as had an interview with them. At this coaching event, we received a lot of feedback, as to what to improve as well as prepare for the Danish Championship. The whole participation process has until now been a great experience,” says Edita and Edmundas.

 

Health & Welfare

ADESU

Engineer student in Welfare Technology Dharsan Rayapthanyan and Occupational Therapist student Eva Ostermann want to give hospitals and patients an advantage as well as save time and money.  ADESU is a compact, hygienic and smell-free dustbin that weighs, measures and compresses disposable materials in the hospitals.

“Start Up Programme has taught me how to handle different issues and problems in connection to the business development and sale of our product. An idea can be the best in the world, but if you can’t see it with a business perspective, then the realization of the idea can be more than difficult,” says Dharsan.

“The thing that has surprised me positively is how easy it is to seek out and get guidance about entrepreneurship. We’ve been met with open arms from a number of competent people within the business world, who’ve tried to be our shoes,” Eva further adds.

 

Tabt Barndom

Design student Charlotte Lindberg and Media Graphis student Mette Stribolt, want to increase the quality of life within those, who’ve been sexually assaulted, as well as raise awareness about what they can do to help themselves.  Taking the form of a free, online, holistic and comprehensive treatment offer, ‘Tabt Barndom’ is going to be a tool to help those, who’ve been sexually assaulted in their childhood and/or youth.

“The participation in Start Up Programme has helped me become more focused on how the future of the company looks. The focus has through working and developing our business plan, been moved from an idea to action – which has been a great process,” says team leader Charlotte.

“It surprised me how many doors the nomination to the Danish Championship has opened. Sexual assaults is still a taboo for many, but since our nomination and the acknowledgement we’ve gotten from The Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship – Young Enterprise, more people have opened up for this taboo. We’ve for instance in contact with partners, who want to contribute with their knowledge and experience within the field of sexual assault, to which we’re happy and grateful for,” Charlotte further adds.

 

Functional Electronic Medicine: F.E.M

F.E.M consists of Multimedia Design student Anna-Kathrine Christensen, Computer Science student Masseh Yar, Law student Christoffer M. Jensen, and Florian Weissermar, who is studying to become a teacher. The 4 students want to optimize the citizens’ life quality and health care workers’ environment, with a dispenser for liquid medicine that weighs a specific amount of medicine as well as doses it at a specific time.

 “As a result from our participation in Start Up Programme, we’ve learned that you should work for and with the things you believe in. We’ve also learned that hard work and great effort are keys to success – you can’t sleep your way to success. It has taken a lot of sweat and tears, to be where we are now. So if you have an idea, then why not grab the chance to realize it, while you still can? This leads to another thing we’ve learnt, taking a chance.  In addition we’ve, also realized that it takes a strong team to make things work – none of us would’ve been able to reach to where we’re now, if we were on our own. Start Up Programme has been a huge help, as it has given us the opportunity and an insight as to how a great teamwork should work,” says Anna-Kathrine.
