Maker – Challenge

Maker – Challenge

Planned short-circuiting between companies and the maker scene – that is the Maker – Challenge!

Within the framework of this Maker Challenge, companies have the opportunity to solve their internal tasks together with a team of Makers. The company specifies the Challenge topic.

Over a six-month period (with 12 days of presence in your company) the task is solved with the help of new training methods. The results are presented at the Maker Faire® Klagenfurt and put to the test.

Advantages of the Maker Challenge for the participating companies:

  • specify the Challenge topics, which are then worked on by two Maker teams each,
  • provide the Maker Team with a mentor or trainer with expert knowledge,
  • benefit from the creative approaches of the makers,
  • receive valuable impulses for their innovations, products and services and
  • expand their creative network and have the chance to secure young, innovative employees for their company.
