An approach to partnership building
Creativity, responsibility and entrepreneurship is an asynchronous online course in the InnoChange project, with one onsite event where students work in randomly distributed teams.
We organized the live event in the form of an idea competition where teams introduced innovative solutions to tackle the problems of isolation.
The event brought not only the good ideas but also the participants’ enthusiasm.

Demo Day of Fil Rouge Capital’s 2022 Fall Acceleration Program 16 October 2022
It was a special learning experience for the representatives of the four InnoChange partner universities to attend the online Demo Day of Fil Rouge Capital’s 2022 Fall Acceleration Program, and especially to also witness the preparations of the FRC portfolio companies for the big event, led by FRC’s expert team.
While it was a great opportunity for the innovation-focused colleagues at the four universities who could “shadow” the FRC Acceleration Program (see previous post), it was an even bigger deal for the startup teams which were delegated into the Program by our universities as full participants, namely EastSmart and Snood from Universitate Babeș-Bolyai (BBU), Alpha Generation Lab from ELTE, Tecive and Skillup from Heriot-Watt University (HWU), and one from Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice (UPJŠ).
While not all six InnoChange teams could get all the way to in fact pitching at the Demo Day, they all benefited a lot from taking part in the FRC Acceleration Program, and those who did stay the entire course, could reap in the extra benefit of having a battle-trained pitch presentation and the attention of dozens of venture investors who showed up at the Demo Day, or watched the pitch videos thereafter.
