Accenture Digital Innovation Challenge – ADIC16
The winner of Accenture Digital Innovation Challenge 2016 and 10,000 euros is Team Ariot for Case Migri
The team’s solution, Hidden Gems, predicts hidden job opportunities based on open big data from the web
The Accenture Digital Innovation Challenge (ADIC) 2016 finals were organized at Slush on December 1, 2016. ADIC is a digital concept competition organized by Accenture and Fjord, together with startup and technology conference Slush, where young talents team up to innovate new services, product concepts or business models to the real life business challenges of the partner companies. This year, seven partners joined ADIC: Ilmarinen, Kalmar, Metso, Migri, Sanoma, Stora Enso, and UPM.
In the finals, seven finalist teams were pitching the solutions they had developed for the challenges of the partners. All solutions and pitches were extremely high-quality, and the competition was very tight. The winner of ADIC16, Team Ariot, was solving Migri’s challenge on how to get immigrants employed. One of the key problems with employment of immigrants is the lack of networks. The team’s concept Hidden Gems predicts hidden jobs based on open big data from the web. The goal is to help immigrants and other job seekers to leverage professional networks without having any. The team consists of three Aalto University students: Stella Kallionpää, Antti Korpelainen and Minna Rissanen. Congratulations to the whole team!
