A course at my university from ”Idé Lab” sparked my innovative interest. Idé Lab is still a creative place for new entrepreneurs.
My buddies idea
I have to give my classmate Fredrik credit for this idea, I tagged along on the course as a supporter. The idea was to design and manufacture small CD-business cards and fill them with cool multi media content. Bare in mind – this was in the year 2000, we had just survived the Y2K doomsday prophesy, the internet was painfully slow and this was cool innovative shit.
Creative meeting place
We were a group of students attending an innovation program, drawing business plans and having a lot of fun. It was a great learning experience. The only setbacks were the classmate that got screwed by some sneaky bastards and some idiot pissing on our parade.
Practice makes perfect
I highly recommend taking classes, attending lectures and trying for yourself. It´s not enough coming up with a bright idea. You have to exercise to gain skills and improve yourself. If you feel uncertain, don’t start with your best innovation. Choose a crappy one and use it as a learning experience.
