Awarded in vinnova's innovate passion competition
Center for Sports and Business has been awarded by Vinnova. On March 8, The Center organized an innovation event for young girls with a passion for horse sports. The innovation event represented the Stockholm region's contribution in Vinnova's Innovate Passion competition.
During the innovation day, the girls created an entrepreneurship staircase, which illustrates steps for how to develop entrepreneurship within the Swedish horse sports industry. We are extremely happy to receive the award and look forward to keep on working with more events and support functions in the near future.
Vinnova's motivation reads as follows:
The Entrepreneurship Staircase is a simple, clear and inspiring staircase that will be used to utilize new innovations for young girls. It illustrates and encourages innovation and entrepreneurship opportunities in the horse sports industry. The model can be used in many other areas linked to passion and innovation.
