We are incredibly excited to announce that Scarletred’s team consisting of four young professionals won 3rd place in the WSA Youth for Innovation case study competition.   

WSA Youth for Innovation (YFI) program brings together students from across Europe, exchanging and collaborating in interdisciplinary teams. The students work together to solve entrepreneurial challenges and build solutions for problems addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). This year one of the challenges was created by Scarletred. 

The challenge that Scarletred set for Young Innovators was to create market breaching strategy and possibly innovate current ScarletredVision´s properties in order to adapt it for injection site reaction (ISR) monitoring. Meaning that they were given a specific use that we would like to see our product in, but not a segment of industry or country that they should focus on. 

Through a six weeks long process of innovation and research students have broadened their horizons in the field of telemedicine, marketing and . Finally, on the 18th of November students presented their solution to the international jury of entrepreneurs, alongside 8 other teams. The jury decided that one of the best solutions for the given challenges was indeed created by the Scarletred team.

Members of the team working on Scarletred’s challenge are coming from three different universities in three countries: 

  • Nikola Bajic (MEF Faculty Belgrade, Serbia),
  • Adelina Mehmed (Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, North Macedonia),
  • Chantal Baumgartner (FHNW University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland, School of Business)
  • Niklas Bauer (FHNW University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland, School of Business)

We are proud of their success and achievement as well as appreciative that we had an opportunity to learn and grow alongside bright young minds!
