April 22 @ 12:30 14:00

Join us for the end of our 2nd Prototyping Fund cycle with the showcase of 13 incredible projects.

The Prototyping Fund is a collaborative program offered by the DESIS Lab @NovaSBE and Nova SBE Haddad Entrepreneurship Institute, created under the project Shaping the World by Innonexus, funded by the European Union. This program awards teams of students (with at least one member from Nova SBE or LSE) up to €600 or €2000 to be used to build hardware, software prototypes or prototype engagement activities, and connects them with the resources, tools, and mentors they need to bring their ideas to life. This spring we selected one team who participated in the Fall for the Phase 2 (for 1500 euros).

In Phase 1, we selected 12 projects, across multiple programs at Nova SBE (with 7 from the Master’s in Impact Entrepreneurship and Innovation) and one from LSE who will join us on campus for the Final Showcase. Projects ranged from upcycling materials and food waste, climate tech (biochar, new material), energy efficiency, and health.

The Prototyping Fund Showcase will take place on April 22nd from 12:30 pm to 2 pm in the open space in the Food Court at Nova SBE.

Students worked hard this semester to prototype and test their ideas and it’s important for them to get feedback and suggestions from different people. As it’s a showcase, you can stop by for only a short time.
