Come learn about Cooperathon and how you can participate in one of the worlds biggest design centric events that is designed to support the growth of entrepreneurs and people who wish to develop an entrepreneurial mindset.

The Cooperathon is a platform connecting partners with the objective to support entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and general citizens to collaborate and build solutions to problems in different domains. It is an international Open Innovation competition that connects citizens, communities, entrepreneurs, researchers, academics and large institutions to develop, together, a socially responsible future.

Inspired by the well-known Google Design Sprint, participants join to a 25-days marathon, which includes workshops and teamwork on Saturdays, as well as specialized sessions and follow-ups on weeknights: dozens of hours of optional but strongly recommended training!
