We will kick-off the event with a warm welcome from our key sponsors. They will also share their vision for the Serendipity Collective and lay down some basic ground rules for the two-day event.
Next, each team will have the opportunity to discuss their idea in what we call “Lightning Talks”. The lightning talk aims to explain how your idea works as clearly and concisely as possible and you will receive feedback and insights from your cohort.
All teams will then participate in a “Concept Poster” creation session, where your high-level business model is articulated in a one-pager, highlighting the known and unknown components of your solution.
We will then break off for lunch and visit the various “Idea Booths”, as a source of inspiration and collaboration.
Following lunch, we have the privilege of presenting our first keynote speaker and an opportunity to pitch our concepts to the cohort.
The next workshop session is about “Bringing Our Concepts to Life” by using a multitude of visualization techniques. The artists in your team will be responsible for leading this activity.
We will end the day with a feedback and closing session, followed by a “Networking Apero”.
Our second day commences with a bang, with a keynote speech, who will inspire each of us with his vision of the future.
The rest of the morning and early afternoon is pre-pitch practice and validating our solutions with our peers and potential target audience.
By mid-afternoon each team will be prepared to pitch their concepts to a select funding panel for the 50,000 USD prize and support in taking our crazy inventions to the next step.
We will end the Serendipity Conference with reflections and closing from our main sponsors.
