Innov8 is the second semester’s high point of every student with an eye on the future, who is fascinated about technology and lives to improve the world. While managing Innov8 you get the opportunity to assemble a panel consisting of the lead innovators in a bunch of different sectors. Next to that you will get to meet dozens of startups on your journey to create the best innovation fair Leuven has yet seen.

Of course, organising the venue, choosing a location and catering along with good budgeting is another pillar of your work.
