Prof Fiona Lettice of the UEA’s Norwich Business School starts the countdown. Only 54 hours to go…
…to form collaborative teams…
…and pitch ideas. NUA Graphic Communication student David Bohn successfully gets through the first round with his business idea, ‘Strand’ which collects cut hair from hairdressers to recycle and create fabrics for the textile industry.
But there’s still time to challenge and interrogate the idea.
And expand and build for presentation.
Mentors were available to advise and inspire.
With feedback received, work resumes into the night.
Day three. And it’s time to pitch to the judging panel.
With so many great ideas to consider, the judges short list their choices.
Prof Fiona Lettice returns to the stage to announce the runners up and ‘the winner of Sync the City 2016 is…’
…Team ‘Pantry’. Their idea was a shopping list app which recommends healthy options. They won the £3,000 top prize.
The People’s Choice Award was picked up by Team ‘Hector’ for their anti-bullying advice bot, ‘Hector Help’.
Great job everyone, all of your ideas were superb.
