Lower Austria: “In-Kind” wins important award

In the summer of 2024, the “In-Kind” team from FH IMC-Krems will receive an important prize: they will participate in the renowned Berkeley Summer School for Entrepreneurship and thus have the opportunity to present their innovative ideas and further develop them in Silicon Valley.

No. The competition culminated in a demo day at the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences, where each team presented their projects to a high-level jury. Team “In-Kind”, consisting of Chieh Pan, Natalia Aldana and Nina Mrzelj, impressed the jury with their platform, which optimizes the management of in-kind donations using state-of-the-art technology. The platform allows in-kind donations to be efficiently documented, sorted and distributed between private donors and social enterprises in real time. In the future, prediction models will be incorporated to further optimize the process.

The Importance of Berkeley's Summer School for Entrepreneurship

The importance of this initiative was highlighted by the state governor Johanna Mikl-Leitner, who emphasized that participation in the Berkeley Summer School for Entrepreneurship provides students with valuable insights into the dynamic startup world of Silicon Valley and promotes international knowledge exchange.

They see the engagement as a unique opportunity to expand their knowledge, gain new perspectives, and make valuable connections.
