Trampery Hack - part of the Digital Skills programme
This event will be delivered virtually.
We are looking for entrepreneurially curious students to take part in our Hack with The Trampery to create solutions to real-life problems that start-up fashion companies face.
- want to be part of changing the face of fashion?
- want to gain experience of working in a team?
- want to develop your problem-solving skills?
Then book onto our Hack in partnership with The Trampery’s new Sustainable Fashion Accelerator taking place on 31 March 2020!
The Trampery's first sustainable fashion accelerator contains companies all working on sustainable fashion solutions. The companies have been developing briefs around current business challenges for teams of Loughborough University London students to solve.
Hackathons are a practical way to develop your entrepreneurial skills and offer a unique way to gain insight into real life businesses and their challenges. The hack will challenge those students involved to reflect on their skills build a team and then come up with innovative solutions. You will be presented with briefs from The Trampery founders and then given the opportunity to ask questions to support you to solve the challenge.
Teams will be introduced to problem solving tools and support to develop their solution from Future Space staff. Teams will then work on the challenge throughout the day before pitching back their solutions at the end of the day to their founder.
Not only is this opportunity a great opportunity to test your skills it offers the chance to meet the founders of rapidly expanding start-up companies to help you grow your network.
There are a limited number of spaces for this event, so make sure to book your place.
What is a Hack?
Hacks have evolved from the IT industry as creative ways to deal with problems. They involve lots of diverse minds working on a challenge until it is solved.
What can you expect?
Our Hack will immerse you in the discipline of solving problems sustainably. Firstly, you will reflect on your own skills – what you bring with you into the hack. Secondly, you will be supported to use these reflections to build a diverse team. Only then will you be given a challenge from a real business and tools to address this problem. Finally – you’ll pitch back your solution to the founders of a real company.
Who can participate?
We have limited numbers, but all students from all Institutes are welcome.
Why should you sign up?
You should sign up to gain more experience that will be useful in getting you economically active when you graduate. The Hack is designed for those looking to forge a graduate level career whether this is starting your own business, working for yourself or working for someone else.
When is it and how long is it?
10.00-4.00pm on Tuesday March 31st Trampery Hack – as part of the Digital Skills programme.
