Author: Nikolina Zeljko | Category: News | Posted: 30.07.2019
From last Monday at 11 AM until yesterday at 6 PM, seven teams participated in the last activity of the SPARK academy program - Innovation Challenge. SPARK Innovation Challenge is a concept that connects SPARK academy and SPARK school participants and creates teams that will work on the challenges that companies face, such as CRM solutions, solutions from the area of HR, accounting, finance, marketing, internal administration or any other solutions to the company's core business-related issues. For the first Innovation Challenge, we brought together seven teams that worked for NSoft, Zendev, Čip Sistemi, SPARK, and SPARK school. Each team was assigned with a problem for which they made a solution in seven days: a holiday logging app, the SPARKreators League organization, a Moodle learning management platform, a startup conference organization, a startup game, the no-code Chameleon platform, and a CRM app. They presented their work to the jury yesterday, but only one could be the best and win a prize - 1000 KM in cash. The prize was fully deserved by the team that worked on the Startup Game web app: Emina Kapetanović, Rijad Tikveša, Ajna Krajinić, Enes Alešević, Kristijan Domgjonaj, Josip Buntić, and Toni Marijanović. The app will be used in accelerators and incubators to manage startups in a fun and educational way. Congratulations to the winners, but also to the other teams for the persistence and effort they have shown over the past three months. I also want to thank our lecturers (Amna Popovac, Mirna Jelčić, Ivana Perković, Larisa Halilović, Luka Prišunjak, Goran Dodig, Marin Sušac, Vedrana Marić, Danica Nenadić, and Zlatan Omerspahić) as well as to the companies that have recognized this innovative concept (NSoft, Zendev, Čip Sistemi). The interest for SPARK academy was huge. We will continue with the academy next year.”, said Iva Đikić, Startup & Entrepreneurship Program Manager at SPARK.
