This Tuesday, the 18th, the closing of the project Ideas Lab took place. The project is a partnership between Cilla Tech Park, Innovation Barn, the City Halls of Turvo and Inácio Martins, the Commercial Association of Inácio, Sebrae, Sicredi, and the Regional Education Centers of Guarapuava and Irati.
During the 4 months of the program, in 20 meetings on Tuesdays, the 33 students from Inácio Martins and Turvo state schools, had workshops, workshops, and lectures on innovation and entrepreneurship at the Innovation Barn room.
According to the director of the Innovation Barn, Isabela Queiroz, the Ideas Lab provided a collective construction and a great exchange of knowledge. “They enhanced each one’s skills”, Isabela concluded.
The ceremony of the final of the Ideas Lab was opened with speeches by the mayors of the participating municipalities and representatives of the sponsoring institutions and project partners.
The students presented the pitch and the products of the ventures developed during the program and received feedback from the judges.
At the end everyone received a certificate of participation, a keychain produced in the 3D machines, and the teams received a cash prize from the Sicredi Cooperatives.
For the Director of Operations, Lorenzo Jr., the Ideas Lab will have a great impact on the lives of these students. “The important thing is that they learned how to better position themselves in the job market and if in the future they go into business, they have already gone through the process and will know how to follow it,” assured Lorenzo.
The Ideas Lab is one of the ways that Cilla Tech Park and the Innovation Barn direct society towards better futures. Thinking this way, we want to bring to the project more municipalities, to change the reality of more young people who will realize this dream.
