The Dock3 project has far exceeded my expectations. Today, during the final applauses, I was moved and I never thought that a project like this could make me feel so many emotions, all together. The energy that has been created with my team, the moments of discouragement, the moments of enthusiasm, the support with the other teams, the fear of speaking to such a wide audience for the first time, telling someone my idea … The organization was meticulous and cared for, the really interesting lessons, the super-Mentors: nice, professional and very helpful.
Dock3Jam was one of those experiences that we remember. Not only for having the opportunity to meet exceptional colleagues, qualified tutors, a wonderful organizing staff and professionals working with the world of startups. But also because it has formed me and given a product-oriented approach that – I confess – I had for too long been underestimated. The validation method of an idea, learned first theoretically with the teacher and then practically with the tutors, will be fundamental for any future activity. In my motivational letter I described myself as “curious and in the daily search for new knowledge”: well my curiosity was tickled and I am back loaded with new, fundamental, knowledge!Thank you for your availability and imagination in organizing this type of activity.
I think Dock3 is a fantastic training experience. Working, cooperating, interacting with people who by age, training, habits, are completely different from you is not at all easy but at the same time enriches you. I recommend this experience to all young people but also to those who, like me, are less young. He opened the window to a world I did not believe existed. Thanks to all the organizers, professors, those who have given their time to follow us and help us. I hope to be able to continue this adventure in order to learn more and more, in such a way as to be able to realize, one day, my project too.
I was so happy to have participated, I would have never expected such an event. I learned many things despite being the youngest and I think the only one who has yet to enroll in university, but for this I can feel lucky. I met new people and shared ideas, and the best thing I learned to work in a team, the main reason why I decided to participate. In short, I also enjoyed a lot and I am increasingly determined on how to continue
Any person with a project, or with a project idea, should take part in Dock3. The main reasons are the following:
1) you have the opportunity to test and potentially improve your idea thanks to the collaboration, cooperation and competition processes that are established between internal and external members of the team, including mentors.
2) you have the opportunity to meet people with whom to establish human and professional relationships outside of Dock3. If you have an idea and need different professional figures to make it happen, participating in Dock3 could be very useful.
3) you have the opportunity to learn small but important things. Especially if you plan to start a project or a startup. Let’s say that it could represent a beginning towards the development of fundamental transversal knowledge and skills in the world of work.
Dock3 is a nice game that I suggest to everyone and that I would do right away. Thanks for the chance.
The DemoDay evening was very pleasant and perfectly organized. The proposals were impeccable from the point of view of form and representation, a clear sign of the fact that students have a solid, rigorous and valid training base. No doubt about enthusiasm and passion. I believe these elements represent a great source of pride and satisfaction for the university given its strategic objectives.
