For the eighth consecutive year, Junior Achievement Cyprus hosted the Innovation Camp, on Tuesday, 14 December 2021. The one-day Innovation Camp ‘Evolve’ encouraged students to use their skills in enterprising and innovative ways, fostering their employability and entrepreneurial flair in the process.
The participants were made up from both Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot backgrounds, aged between 15 and 18, from private high schools from all over Cyprus. Students had the opportunity to come together in groups of 3-4 people and collaborate to suggest an innovative idea towards a business challenge that was given on their arrival at the premises. The participants were asked to develop an innovative product, service, or solution to improve the well-being and mental health of people, especially those that were mostly affected during the pandemic.
Students had only a few hours to collaborate with other students they had not met before and to collectively shape their ideas. At the end of the day, all teams presented their solutions to a panel of successful and experienced entrepreneurs.
