The first weeks of November the best students from Ukrainian universities, partners of Tempus program, are visiting Sweden as a part of the course on innovations and entrepreneurship.

Five universities nominated their best students for the trip, among them there are participants and winners of IT Eureka contest. The journey started on November 2nd. The first weeks students spend in Sweden, learning from professors of Linnaeus University and other European higher educational establishments and meeting successful entrepreneurs. Later the young specialists will be welcomed to Portugal.
On November 6th, the students visited Sigma office in Växjö for a series of lectures and speeches from the company`s representatives about innovation and the way to apply it to work, as well as from the representatives of Sigma Clients. The day ended with a networking party.
“Within the frameworks of Sigma Day we have acquainted the students with the company and its brief history, shared experience on management and projects overview, gave a lecture on entrepreneurship spirit,” says Niklas Malmros, President of Sigma Technology Solutions. “We also invited our Customer to join us and tell the story of the Minnits project. We have chosen this project, as it is a great example of efficient cooperation, creative thinking, and innovative approach.”
Konstantin Timofeev, Project Manager at Sigma Software and Minnits team member since the project inception, shared his experience how to bring ambitious ideas to life showing Minnits game as an example..
“I was glad to take part in the event. The project is really engaging; we developed the game from the initial idea to a successful product that gains big popularity among schools in different countries. I think it is nice that students were able to take an insight look,” says Konstantin.
“This trip is a great opportunity for students to visit European universities, get valuable knowledge from the best professors and from experienced businessmen.
