The second et.lakes messdeck took place again at Erkki's house. Some pictures are published in our Facebook page, go like it! This time we got a visitor from Helsinki, Gospel Oparaocha, a recent PhD student at the edtech group with a Master's degree from Aalto University School of Economics. He presented his research topic to several of us in the room, which I can summarize as "Smart cities in ICT Business districts". He is focusing in his original Lagos, Nigeria, but et.lakes also provides him with a great research case to develop his theories.
Other participants included Merja Pennanen from Joensuu City Theatre, and Antti Vikman from Nolwenture Ltd.. Merja was busy with Pauliina Korhonen, Joensuu Science Society member and Scifest organizer. They were most likely preparing exciting activities for the coming Scifest in April.
We were quite lucky to get Antti over, as he is very busy preparing for tomorrow's Venture Kick Off, a meeting with investors organized by Joensuu Science Park. As soon as he presents at the event, we will be able to tell more about Nolwenture first commercial product.
This coming Friday, et.lakes will visit the educa conference in Helsinki to keep looking for partners and feedback of our products. If you want to meet us, send us an email (etlakes at cs uef fi).
See you soon!
