During the Intopia, me and my later co-founder of Yousician Mikko realized how well the two of us work together under pressure. This learning would become crucial for us co-founding real-life company Yousician which today is the worlds largest music educator. We still refer to the 20€ cash-prize we won in Intopia as the “seed-funding” for Yousician. We invested it well into a few beers at the “Kultainen Apina” pub in Tampere, where our passion for entrepreneurship took root. From my experience, working intensively with a person on a project like Intopia is a great test for how well the collaboration will work in a professional setting. And while it was a lot of hard work, it was fun also.
