On 28 September, the EIT Alumni Community are holding a special EIT Alumni Startup Days (EASD) event in Stockholm. This year the event has been handed over to the leaders of our Women@EIT Community, who have put their own spin on the hackathon - all mentors, coaches, and jury members will be women.
What is the The EIT Alumni Startup Days?
The EASD is a flagship event of the EIT Alumni. Originally created in 2015, the EASD is a hackathon that brings together graduates, young professionals, entrepreneurs, and start-up enthusiasts from different fields of expertise under one roof to solve challenges faced by European society and industry. An integral part of these 12-hour hackathons is the partnership with key players in European industry, who are invited to propose the challenge for the event and judge the winning solution.
Women @ EIT is a community led by Alumni of the EIT, aiming at promoting and supporting women in entrepreneurship and technology.
This year we have two excellent partners posing challenges:
