CREA is open for teams with an established business idea that on one hand aim to make a step forward in design and user experience aspect of their service or product, and on the other hand want to improve their business model and pitching capacity. You can also apply as an individual student, with or without a business idea, and form a new team with other individual participants or join an existing team that needs your skills and enthusiasm. Students can receive 3 ECTS credit points by contributing at CREA while the best teams will have an opportunity to pitch their idea at the international event. The topic of CREA SA Ljubljana is Green Future. The choice of the topic was inspired by the fact that Ljubljana is a holder of the title European Green Capital 2016, and as such strongly feels about the importance of development of new products and services that contribute to the green future.
