Anastasia Laskovaya, Assistant of the Department of Strategic and International Management, Graduate School of Management, St. Petersburg University (GSOM SPbU), took part in the work of the team of organizers and the methodological commission of the SPbU Olympiad on Technopreneurship for high school students.
The participants of the qualifying stage were asked to solve the case and present the concept of the project in one of the selected areas: unmanned vehicles, bio- and information technologies, rational resource consumption, modern energy and a smart city. The winners of these competitions took part in the final stage, which took place in the format of a summer school from 18 to 25 June.
Anastasia Laskovaya noted: “I was pleased with the high level of project development and solution of cases. Despite the complexity of the tasks, many teams presented ready-made MVP projects developed from scratch in three days. Already at school, they are able to professionally and tastefully design presentations and make prototypes of technological projects. I believe that the future of technopreneurship belongs to them”.
At the final stage of the Olympiad, representatives of the Technopark of St. Petersburg and case-giving companies BIOCAD, Geoscan, Cribrol, acted as experts for projects and cases at the final stage of the Olympiad.
Technopreneurship is a tool for the practical use of fundamental and applied knowledge. Since the 2020/2021 academic year, technopreneurship has become one of the SPbU Olympiad's subjects.
