More than WOOD!

At the ‘Startup Weekend: More than WOOD!’ from the multi-purpose bench to the henhouse for every household

Promising business ideas sprouted during the creative working weekend, that bring forth new guidelines for the development of the timber industry in Slovenia.

The ‘Startup Weekend: More than WOOD!’ concluded on 22 June 2014 in Ljubljana, and was organised at the Biotechnical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana by the Student Council of the Biotechnical Faculty (ŠS BF) and the Regional Development Agency of the Ljubljana Urban Region (RDA LUR). The University of Ljubljana (UL) was the main partner of the event. Young people developed their ideas in the field of wood in an intensive three-day event through the cooperation with academics, industry representatives and other experts. Among the more than 40 participants, who made up the 9 interdisciplinary teams and presented 10 ideas, the expert commission selected the winning idea at the end of the event, which was the multi-purpose bench Vave, developed during the intensive weekend by Lea Mlečnik, Ana Pezdirc, Jernej Koželj, Nika Nagode and Luka Suhadolnik.
