Interact Innovation Camp (I²C) is a zone within Interact that promotes the interaction of innovation between the delegates and entrepreneurs in order to provide some focus on Innovative ways using Data and Technologies and to stimulate the innovation of the industry.
In 2012, 10 young entrepreneurs and innovators from Catalonia, and 10 from Flanders were selected and invited to animate the Interact innovation room within the Hotel Arts on May 30th and 31st. Each entrepreneur had an equal display where they could connect with the Interact audience during the 2 days of the congress. In order to challenge these young entrepreneurs and to offer them the opportunity to make themselves visible, each of them received 3 minutes to present their innovative solution in the ‘elevator pitch’, a animation during the breaks where they got a central position.
