São Leopoldo’s Mayor comes to the Labs to Kick-Off the Innomarathon 2015
As a part of the Month of Service, we teamed up with São Leopoldo’s city hall to create the InnoMarathon 2015, a project to develop solutions based on real life challenges faced by our community.
On October 1st, the volunteers who registered to participate on the competition (students from schools in the region, college students and SAP employees) joined the project’s Kick-Off. At the event, São Leopoldo’s Mayor Aníbal Moacir da Silva explained the challenges that each group will have to work on: Health, Education, Safety and and Services Segments.
The groups will have the whole month of October to create their prototypes. At the end of project, a winner will be selected based on the following criteria: most innovative; viable, feasible and desirable; the most advanced on the development; and the most collaborative to the other challenges.
Congratulations to all the employees who are participating and have embraced this initiative! This is not only a great opportunity to share knowledge with other employees and people from outside of the Labs, but a chance to propose changes in the society we live in!
