SEI Changer is a 10-day Impact Innovation bootcamp where high school students, divided into teams, work to solve global challenges by designing scalable projects. The goal is to develop business ideas capable of responding to the challenges related to the Sustainable Development Goals launched by the UN.
You are never too young to make a difference: in fact, being a Changer requires “only” passion for innovation, determination and a desire to put yourself on the line. That’s why we decided to offer this Program to high schools.
The 50 selected students will work first-hand on the challenges of the Sustainable Development Goals launched by the UN. To do this, they’ll be guided by professors, mentors from SEI, and experienced entrepreneurs. The students will also have access to maker spaces and tech libraries in order to develop functioning prototypes and services.
The first high school that decided to get involved in SEI Changer is the I.I.S. G. Vallauri of Fossano (CN). The institute, well known for its hackathons and its cutting-edge laboratories, welcomed the offer with enthusiasm.
SEI Changer is an opportunity for students to actually try what it means to be entrepreneurs. In fact, each prototype that will be presented at the final Demo Day will be the starting point for a new startup. The teams that will decide to start the amazing journey into the world of entrepreneurship, will have the knowledge to further develop the idea, turning it into reality.
Students, expert mentors and global challenges are ready: SEI Changer is about to start!
