Demola is an international organization that facilitates co-creation projects between university students and companies, either locally or internationally, with the aim to find innovative solutions to the needs of companies, institutions and organizations that are seeking for the spark of creativity, design thinking and new products. DEMOLA Latvia is located at TechHub Riga premises in the centre of the Old Town.
DEMOLA Latvia was launched in 2014, and it is operated by PULSE Hub.
Multidisciplinary DEMOLA student teams work on real-life cases together with partner companies. For instance, teams create and refine business concepts, develop new products, or build demos and prototypes. DEMOLA team ensures that the process is formatted, facilitated; work is systematic and runs on schedule and yields meaningful result. The partner company can purchase or license the team's creations, so there’s some money that students can make as well. Partners may also want to continue the project for further development.
