Skinnovation is about Ski, Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Like many great ideas Skinnovation was not created in a conference room but during lunch at a burger restaurant somewhere in Innsbruck… However, long story short: Kathrin, at this time fresh research assistant at the University of Innsbruck, initiated the first Skinnovation pilot in February 2015 supported by the Center for Academic Spin-offs Tyrol (CAST) who took over the role of family, friends and fools. Believing in the idea, the CAST provided the necessary cash and some valuable advice to make Skinnovation happening – and well it paid off. In 2016 Skinnovation has been taken to the next level. The University of Innsbruck became the official organizer of Skinnovation and executes the event in cooperation with the Junge Wirtschaft/Wirtschaftskammer Tirol (Chamber of Commerce).
So let’s go Skinnovation 2017!
