Are you interested in innovation and entrepreneurship? Do you have an idea that you want to turn into reality? Entrepreneurship is a concept that embodies many things. It can range from starting a business to a general attitude of action. Sometimes this action is equated with creativity, seeing opportunities where no one else has seen them before or improving something that simply needs improving because times have changed.

You do not need to have an idea to get support for innovation and entrepreneurship at Malmö University.

Leapfrogs offers financial support to test your business idea.
Do you have a business idea you have been working on? Would you want to work on it full-time to see if it could take off? Or perhaps you have already been working on the idea, but you need time and money to develop it further? We are here to help you!
Leapfrogs will give you 33 000 SEK for full-time work on your idea from June-August. In addition to the financial support, you will be offered support in areas such as business development and pitching techniques.

Stormathon is an innovation competition inspired by traditional hackathons, based on creating new ideas and solutions in a short time, together with others. Students interested in societal problem-solving, and innovation are invited to apply and are then divided into dynamic teams based on different skills. All teams work on the same assignment, from an external client, and are coached in problem-solving methodology and idea development by experienced innovation coaches. At the end of the day, each team pitch their solution to the client and a jury.
Stormathon is organised once a year by Malmö University’s Innovation Hub Storm.
