OPEN INVITATION TO ALL DESIGN STUDENTS!

WHAT IS NEXT?

BRIDEE uses 2 events and our online platform for teamcreation.

The 2 events stimulate interaction, the platform brings structure and allows students who weren’t able to join us at the IDEAFAIR to scroll through the ideas (sheet + video of the pitch).

The IDEAFAIR on Thursday was a big success.
Idea owners pitched their idea for business and design students followed by a network moment to stimulate interaction. A night full of exploration and entrepreneurship. Event video will follow soon.

Our online platform allows students to get an overview of all the ideas.
Subscribe to BRIDEE.org, sign NDA, fill in the personal info and IDEAS will be available.
You can read the idea sheets, check the ideaowner profile, mark the best ideas by giving them a rating and even watch the video of the IDEAFAIR pitch. Perfect for students who missed the IDEAFAIR.

Next event is the MATCHUP, Tuesday, 21 th of October.
We invite everyone to join us in a creative setting.
By challenging the ideas and sharing visions, the best match between ideators, business and design students will result in a full operational BRIDEE team. Please subscribe today at events.bridee.org.

The team registration will open up the same evening (10pm).
Make sure you’ve talked to your favorite ideaowner, students before.

TEAM CREATION

Finding the perfect team is key, to do so we organise several events.

IDEAFAIR (TH 16 OCT - 7 PM)
Selected Idea owners will pitch their idea (2 min) at the IDEAfair. Their aim is to inspire you as a Design student and to persuade you to team up. So listen carefully and rate your favourite ideas!
There is a network / demo moment after the pitching.
A night of fun, inspiration and excitement. Visuals of past years, click here.
 
After the IDEAFair, you can get in contact with the idea owners and business students, exploring the ideal challenge you want to tackle and the team that matches your expectations and ambitions. The BRIDEE platform will support this matchmaking.
 

MATCHUP (TUE 21 OCT - 7PM)
An extra event BRIDEE MATCHUP is organized (TUE 21 OCT) to support the team building and to match teams of students with the challenge of the idea owner. You are invited to reflect on the idea, the approach, the ideal results and the contribution you can provide to the team. Speed dating, lean brainstorms, simple design and competence models and quick designs will align the vision, the goals and the drivers of the team.
 
The deadline to register your multidisciplinary team is 23 Oct - 6 pm.

CO CREATION

During the co-creation phase you and your team work on the project with the support of academic, practitioner and design coaches.
BRIDEE organizes a series of workshops, coaching sessions and master classes – focusing on ideation, market research, user centric design, branding, marketing, financing, etc. – to help you and your team to turn your idea into a real venture. This results in a business plan, a business model canvas and a design concept.
Details of the events will be communicated after registration.

END EVENT

BRIDEE teams will be challenged to continue working on their project.
With our End Event (a pitch / press conference / networking session) we give your team an extra push to achieve a real business. We give you visibility, but also bring your team in contact with parties that can help with the next stage of the development. These include investors, business angels, companies and also a large number of institutions such as Enterprise Agency, Flemish Living Lab Platform, IWT, Innovation, VOKA, ...
