On June 24, the visitors of the YouthDay festival competed in their knowledge about startups in three games and won presents. Young people compared startups and countries of their founding, as well as guessing the age of the founders of the world's most famous startups. It turns out that WordPress, Mozilla Firefox, Tumbler were founded by students, as well as the famous Microsoft and Facebook.
Students were given the opportunity to express all that frustrates them on an improvised wall from the network of academic business incubators YEP and IT company Lucky Labs. Each startup begins with finding the actual problem for future users. Therefore, all the wall inscriptions will be used by YEP residents to find their ideas in the future.
YEP program manager Kateryna Sapnova held a lecture about how to become an entrepreneur and why the university is the best place for that.
On the YEP location, one could find out how much you're a startuper, drink orange lemonade, and make a selfie with giant oranges. We are grateful to the organizers of YouthDay for the opportunity to hold the Youth Day!
