Future Innovator After Work

Future Innovator After Work was held on May 8, 2015 at the Collaboratory. This event’s purpose was to get to know each other, the Future Innovators of Göteborg. Over 40 participants with varied backgrounds interested in being future innovators for example there were engineers, entrepreneurs, designers and makers of all types.
Coordinating this After Work was a group of HDK Business and Design students ( Samantha Hookway, Katarina Pepichova, Dimitris Tsagkos, and Vivi Shen) partnering with First to Know’s Scandinavia AB’s The ( ) Space and the Collaboratory. Plus we teamed up with the Göteborg chapter of Engineers without Borders!
The participants were encouraged to mark the space by their ideas in different artistic ways which included photo booth (see the GIF) and the prototyping session, to name a few. We successfully broke the ice with mingling activities…

Gathering@Collaboratory 6/3

To welcome our new members and partners, and anyone else curious about what we do, Collaboratory is inviting you to a knytkalas/potluck together with Engineers without Borders Sweden.
Knytkalas means that you bring something to share with others, preferably something to eat or drink, but anything that we can build stuff with would be fun too. Or both build and eat would be even better as we are also pre-launching our new concept The Kitchen.
Jasmine will be by the bar to answer any questions you might have about this awesome space ship Collaboratory and how you can be a part of this community of change makers.
From 19.00 doors are open and we close around 21/22.
Welcome!!!
