topstudentchallenges.com is a new, easy-to-use competition platform that selects and presents high profile student challenges and other academic contests and highlights them in one convenient place. The platform focuses on sustainability and social innovation issues.
Online PR News – 28-August-2013 – Cologne, Germany – Ideation expert Dieter Welfonder today announced the availability of a
new online competition hub that enables students from all over the world to scan for and find high profile student competitions, idea challenges, and other extra-curricular creativity contests, with a special focus on sustainability, greentech/cleantech, and social innovation-related problem statements.
The online competition hub, topstudentchallenges.com is the brainchild of sustainability consultant and ideation expert Dieter Welfonder, and a small team of university students and recent graduates from universities in Cologne and Duisburg, Germany.
“I encourage the growing number of students who want to lead a purposeful student life instead of merely being productive working horse students, to look into the vaste range of student competitions with real world problems at their base. There is no better way to improve your academic, soft and professional skill set, or boost your post-graduation employability, than participating in a student competition that brings out the most creative of you - ideally solving some of the world's most serious problems on the way." says Welfonder, himself a university lecturer of many years.
"We hope to see topstudentchallenges.com become the world's number one problem solution space for ambitious young change makers."
Information supplied by competition organizers and editorial input will be available on whatever digital device students use today and in the future: mobile, tablet, and desktop PC. The array of social media channels on Youtube, Google+, Facebook and Twitter makes it easy and straightforward to access information about high profile student competitions. The website presents idea challenges, startup competitions, business plan contests, as well as writing / essay contest, design and music competitions for students from all over the world with all academic backgrounds.
