Join the Sprint crew!

We are looking for volunteers to join Sprint Innovation Festival 2022. We offer tasks for assistant coaches, event assistants and production.

Interested in credits and an experience with great people?

Sprint Innovation Festival is a week-long annual innovation festival that brings together a staggering amount of higher education students, companies, municipalities and third sector organizations as well as experts and researchers from various domains. This hybrid event of about 600 people requires a great crew and we are now looking for students to join the Sprint team!

Would you like to be involved in building this event that happens to be be one of the greatest in our community?

What kind of tasks are there?

We need many kind of talents so you can be a first year student or with more experience – we’ll find the best role for you!

We do not require you to have previous years of work experience or a specific field of study, but we expect enthusiasm, commitment and attitude. At Sprint we work as a team and for us your attitude and energy is what matters!

Each year we collect feedback from the volunteers and use this data to make the event even better next year. In 2021 we asked the student team hosts how likely they would recommend Sprint Volunteering for a friend and we got a great number: 4,5 (the scale was 1=wouldn’t recommend, 5= would highly recommend). So trust your peers and take this chance to experience Sprint as a crew member!

Volunteers work on campus

Please note that in order to be a volunteer at Sprint (both event assistants and assistant coaches), you need to be present on campus during the innovation week 7.-11.11.2022. So please make sure in your calendar that you can join us live!

The team spirit was good and it was nice to be involved.

I felt that I was well included in the group.

I learned a lot about teamwork, coaching and myself. I dare to take on new tasks in the future more boldly thanks to this project, you gave a lot in a small amount of time.
