Etihad Aviation Group (EAG) has announced the launch of Fikra University 2019, bringing back the successful programme which fosters the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation amongst university students all over the UAE.
The third edition of this competition invites any student currently enrolled in a university within the UAE to submit an innovative proposal under this year’s theme of ‘Seamless travel, endless possibilities’.
Submissions for the competition open on 8 September 2019, and the Fikra University organisers will be visiting a selection of universities across UAE to meet students, answer their questions and encourage participation.
At the end of the submission period, six finalist teams or individuals will be selected for a three-week Boot Camp, where they will be provided with workshops, training and mentoring support to refine their proposals into feasible business cases.
All finalists will conclude their journey by presenting their ideas in front of a judging panel at a Demo Day on 15 December 2019, where a winning idea will be selected for implementation.
