2nd place in the FINAL!

Today was the day that we got to compete in the final of this year’s edition of student entrepreneur of the year in Sweden. With a chance of proceeding to the main event in NY, stakes were quite high to say the least, and competition was fierce..

No not at all! The other two contestants were lovely, we had a great time and it was a lot of fun to exchange ideas with other entrepreneurs.

All three finalists, Absoluteapartment, Verendus and Blåbärsgården, got to present their companies in front of a jury of 8 who then proceeded to question us, our ideas and intentions. We couldn't have had more different companies if we had tried but all of us had an unique idea, and we went for it. 
All in all, it was a great day, I learnt a lot, got some really good ideas from a few of the jury members and the presentation was very good if I may say so. I also scored a few more apartments for the rest of you to book! =)  I might also buy a few Blueberry bushes..
In the end, we winded up in second place, the winner Verendus was already doing amazingly well, the idea and the brilliant company might actually win the whole thing. I wish Dick Petersson the best of luck in NY and thank Entreprenörskapsforum for a great day!
