Green Hexagon is a unique pre-incubation program focused on green ideas. It was created with six pillars in mind: development, skills, collaboration, business, innovation, and the environment. The aim is to connect students from universities in the Czech Republic, Austria, Estonia, and Latvia on one platform and to create international teams of young professionals with different skills to find solutions to the environmental issues of today’s world.
Form an international team, brainstorm, come up with an original solution, attend a boot camp in Austria, meet new friends across Europe, gain global experience, and win €5,000 for your idea! Does that sound like a good plan? Join us! Sign up for the program and try to propose a solution to an environmental or climate challenge that keeps you awake.
If you want to gain new experiences and you like challenges, join.
And what will the Green Hexagon program look like?
At the end of February, the opening event for Ideaton will take place, where we will meet all interested parties who want to join the program in person and online. As part of the introductory meeting, we will divide into teams and brainstorm on problems and solutions to climate and environmental challenges. The goal during the next 4 months will be to build a meaningful and comprehensive idea for a future startup based on professional workshops focused on, e.g., business models, pitching, product design, financial models, and others. As part of the program, a boot camp will also take place in Austria, where all teams will meet and exchange experience and ideas for solving specific problems. The culmination of the program is the presentation of complete ideas in front of an expert committee and the competition for the first prize, which is EUR 5,000 for your business idea.
Green Hexagon is part of the ERASMUS+ project of four universities: the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague, the University of Latvia, the University of Tartu, and the University of Applied Sciences in Austria—and their innovation centers and business incubators. The joint project is called Business-Pedagogical Partnerships for Strengthening Innovation and Development of Green Startups in Higher Education and aims to support the growth of competencies and education of university staff, students, researchers, or young entrepreneurs in the creation of new business ideas.
