Head of sTARTUp Lab Maret Ahonen says that over the years, more and more student teams want to compete in Kaleidoskoop because it’s a great chance for them to stand out in the startup world with their awesome and innovative idea. In addition, the best teams get to pitch at the sTARTUp Day.
Over the years, Kaleidoskoop has been a great starting point for many student teams who are now functioning companies. The winner of the last Kaleidoskoop was team S-Kub, who make solid shampoo cubes. The best STARTER team in 2019, CommuniCare, is creating a network of volunteers all over Estonia to provide companions and communication partners for the elderly living in nursing homes. The winner in the 2019 autumn season, student company Münt produces environmentally friendly toothpaste tablets.
