“Desafío Emprende” Innovation Challenge
In March 2014 Ivan, Jordi, Andrea and I formed another team called “TechnoWall” to take part in a different challenge, the hardest I’ve ever faced.
We luckily won the “Desafío emprende”, a project organized by “Fundació La Caixa” and all because of an idea that we came up with about an intelligent plug of universal use. Our win resulted to be one of the best experiences that I have ever lived since the prize consisted of a trip to Silicon Valley to work out a project suggested by our sponsor, that consisted in developing new techniques to cut out school absenteeism (also known as playing truant) from boys in risk of social exclusion and so improving their life quality.
On top of that, we could also enjoy the experience of visiting some of the most important technological companies of the moment like “Google”, “Dropbox”, “HP” and “TechShop” and understand their innovative work methods.
The challenge is still on! Let’s keep doing like this TechnoWall!!
