Workshop Activities and Flow: Exciting, Engaging, and Empowering

Our Entrepreneurship Award workshop is designed to be an immersive, interactive, and transformative experience that will leave your team inspired and equipped to excel in the entrepreneurial world.

1. Icebreakers

We kick off the workshop with engaging icebreakers about entrepreneurship that set the stage for a fun and collaborative atmosphere and encourage participants to network and bond with their colleagues. This initial phase is crucial in creating an environment where everyone feels comfortable and open to sharing their ideas and insights.

2. Forming Teams

Participants are divided into small groups, ideally consisting of 3-5 members with diverse backgrounds and skills. This diversity helps create a dynamic environment and encourages collaborative problem-solving.

3. Generating Keywords

The workshop facilitator provides each team with two random keywords. These keywords can be related to a specific industry, technology, or even abstract concepts. Combining two unrelated words sparks creativity and pushes teams to think outside the box.

4. Brainstorming the Startup Idea

With only ten minutes, teams must quickly brainstorm and develop a unique startup concept based on their assigned keywords. Participants are encouraged to think creatively, share ideas, and actively engage in the discussion. The focus is on generating a cohesive and innovative concept rather than perfecting every detail.

5. Refining the Pitch

Once the startup idea is developed, teams must create a compelling pitch showcasing their concept. This involves identifying the target market, outlining the problem being solved, and explaining the proposed solution. Teams should also consider their startup's unique selling points and potential revenue streams.

6. Presenting the Pitch

After the ten-minute time limit, each team presents its startup to the rest of the participants. This presentation should be concise and engaging, conveying the startup concept. Teams may use visual aids, storytelling techniques, or other creative approaches to enhance their pitch.

7. Feedback and Discussion

Following each presentation, other participants and the workshop facilitator provide constructive feedback and suggestions. This exchange of ideas further helps teams refine their startup concepts and promotes a supportive, collaborative environment.
