Worldcoo’s founders, Aureli Bou and Sergi Figueres, shared their experiences on entrepreneurship last week, in the Networking Day, an event promoted by one of their principal partners, KIC InnoEnergy.
More than a hundred students from different KIC InnoEnergy Masters programs (RENE, MIE, SELECT & Clean Coal) attended the Networking Day Event, held on last Wednesday, February 6th, at CC Iberia Incubator and EsadeCreapolis venues in Sant Cugat. The objective of the activity was to present to the students the KIC InnoEnergy’s mission and business objectives, to create networks between students from technical and management Master programmes, so as to create joint work on the Master thesis, and to develop the added value activities of the students in research and business creation. It has been the first time that students from 4 different KIC InnoEnergy MSc programmes meet together.
The opening speech was performed by KIC InnoEnergy CEO, Diego Pavia, who spoke to the students about the main objectives of the masters, the opportunities they will find along the way and what was expected from them as participants. Afterwards, Aureli Bou and Sergi Figueres, Worldcoo’s founders, shared their experiences on how creating and sustaining a new business with KIC’s support was like.
In the second part of the meeting, the students from RENE, SELECT and Clean Coal visited KIC’s incubator facilities, as well as a sustainable house built by the start-up Noem and located at the entrance of the EsadeCreapolis building. In addition, MIE and RENE students doing the MSc participated in a networking session for the cooperation of their MSc thesis work, structured as a three-minute pitch made by the students. This activity was followed by the session’s wrap up.
