PRIMAVERA Seeks Innovation Super-Heroes at Second Tec Talks
‘Find Innovation Super Heroes’ is the technology firm’s challenge to reward the most innovative ideas and projects in the field of management software applications.
The headquarters of the technology firm PRIMAVERA BSS in Braga will be turned into a thriving incubator of ideas, when the second edition of TEC Talks is held on the forthcoming 12 and 13 October. This 24-hour non-stop marathon for the development of new, innovative and creative management software apps will be judged by a jury that will reward the projects making the biggest breakthroughs and which present mechanisms that make a difference in support for business management.
This year’s event is entitled "Fish Challenge, Finding Innovation Super Heroes”. Directed essentially to students of the Universities of Minho and Porto, the event will also involve PRIMAVERA employees and technicians from partner companies. The teams will have 24 hours to design and develop their ideas, which will be presented in a pitch made to the jury. The jury, in turn, will award a prize of 2,000 euros to the most innovative and creative solution.
David Afonso, Senior Vice President of PRIMAVERA BSS highlights the fact that "The stimulus to innovation and creativity is in PRIMAVERA’s DNA. It was through innovation that PRIMAVERA came into being, and we know how important it is to give ideas an opportunity. That's why we want to create an atmosphere of incubation, in which employees, students and partners have the chance to put their ideas into practice and validate their feasibility.”
"We believe that the current technology, which is heavily focused on the Cloud and mobility, is a catalyst for bold projects that may revolutionise business processes. It is these fresh ideas that we're looking for, giving them the opportunity to go from being ideas to becoming viable projects,” says David Afonso.
There were around one hundred participants in the previous edition, and this year the number should surpass 100, due to the opening of the project to students, particularly those from the Universities of Minho and Porto, institutions with which PRIMAVERA has a very close working relationship.
Applications are being accepted and can be submitted up until 5 October online at http://tectalks.primaverabss.com/, where all the information about the initiative is available. The organisers are expecting a "tidal wave" of creativity, talent and entrepreneurship at this initiative that seeks to boost the country's talent in the field of technology.
