Kick off party @Demola!

More than 30 student teams started  projects with companies

The event started at 16.00 but we were there already half an hour earlier. The place was full of new faces coming to see the presentation which made us feel really excited.

The first presentation started few minutes later, when the facilitators of the projects introduced themselves and talked a little bit how Demola works from inside. Afterwards, we had the opportunity of listening to some successful stories from students who participated in the last Innosummers (which is a full-time summer job working on a project in a more intensive way).

All of them seemed to be so friendly and to be a big family, making us feel relaxed and motivated to start. Then, we had a special guest from YLE who gave us really good tips about working on a team or what we should do and not to do in order to succeed in our projects and working life. In the last position, a member of Stream Tampere came to tell us about their organization, which helps young people with entrepreneurial ideas to develop them into real businesses.

Right after all these presentations, we could finally eat and have a beer with our team! It was the best opportunity to finally get to know each other better and talk about something else than the project we are involved in… at the end, having fun together is an essential to feel comfortable during the work process and bring it to a good result.  We also had the chance to meet also some second year IMP’s and members of different projects and play some games together. In my case, I’m so glad I got the chance to meet amazing people from very different backgrounds, interests and skills.  I feel so lucky!
