Due to the success of the first edition, JUNITEC pursued the growth of TecStorm, making it a national reference event in the technology and entrepreneurship fields. The 2018’s objectives are: “More time, greater reach and better conditions”.
In order to reach this goal we will count on partners in the organization of the event, reaching a larger number of students with a greater geographic diversity. In comparison with the first edition, the main differences are not only in the duration of the event, since in TecStorm’18 it will be forty-eight hours, but also in the fact that it covers the whole country, not focusing only on students from the region of Lisbon. In addition, a problem bank will be available before the event, for teams to be able to join the new Social Category – turn an idea submitted by a patient into reality. Social Category will be developed in partnership with Patient Innovation and will certainly provide solutions with an high impact not only for patients but also for the whole society. The key idea of the event will remain, being this the stimulus of the creative and enterprising spirit, with the purpose of obtaining prototypes of high quality and projection, that could be the origin of a startup.
