There are many events such as hackathons or start-up weekends that bring together creative people to develop ideas of entrepreneurial ventures.

From informal discussions with the Chamber of Social and Solidary Economy Vaud was born the idea of a “citizen hackathon” focused on social entrepreneurship and innovation.

The first Urban Creative Weekend will take place between the 7th and 9th April 2017 at the University of Lausanne. It’s finally the members of the student association Oikos Lausanne that took over the lead of the event and the Snowball Lab is happy to act as an advisor and pull some strings in the background.

It’s fantastic to see how a snow flake is slowly turning into a snowball and – who knows – maybe someday a real avalanche of new projects will be implemented.
