About our project:
In November, we will fly to Brisbane, Australia to compete in the final round of the 2017 Global Business Challenge. The theme of this year’s competition is renewable energy and so our solution aims to promote energy based on renewable sources to the mass audiences. The competition is organized by QUT, and co-hosted by the University of Queensland, Griffith University, and sponsored by government and industry leaders. In the final event seven finalist teams will work intensively for 48 hours to develop a business case proposal that is specific to their unique solution.
Meanwhile, we continue our preparations for the final event. Professor Mikko Jalas from Aalto University, our primary coach, has given us a lot of valuable advice and suggestions throughout our development process. Our first prototype is now up and running; however, we want to improve it as much as possible to demonstrate a well-polished product at the competition. We are constantly seeking advice and feedback from any people who may show interest in our idea.
We’re really looking forward to the final round in Brisbane!
