Unconvention 2013 organised by the European Young Innovators Forum (EYIF) took place on 6-7 June in Brussels. The event gathered young innovators, serial entrepreneurs, investors and also policy makers. The InnoCoffee with Startup leaders proved to be a good start, with Carlos Eduardo Espinal (Seedcamp) and Derek Holt (Startup America) sharing their thoughts on startup ecosystems in Europe and the US. After two inspiring workshops (about Big Data and the Raspberry Pi) the panels took place in the European Parliament.The Hand-in-Scan team – winner of the EYIF Young Innovator of the Year award in 2012 – was invited to share the details of what is really possible to achieve in one year’s time. A new device, expanding team, scientific results, growing partner network – just to name a few. We wish this year’s innovators to have a story to tell after a year!
