It took place on November 19 and 20, 2022 TecnoChallenge (until this edition, Weekend Challenge), one weekend non stop dedicated to solving real challenges of the TecnoCampus entrepreneurial community. In the eighth edition, the objective of the event was to develop the entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial skills of the students who participated, strengthen the company-university link and find innovative solutions for three categories of challenges: the challenge of the company Ambisort, that of the startup Bambai and that of the University Entrepreneurship area of the TecnoCampus .

Startup Bambai's challenge focused on a technology to generate a safe community. The third challenge, corresponding to the area of University Entrepreneurship, was focused on the consolidation of the Entrepreneurial Community of the TecnoCampus.
TecnoChallenge brought together nearly 50 undergraduate and master's students from various degrees. In a preliminary session, which took place on November 11, ten multidisciplinary teams were formed, whose members met for the first time and were able to choose together the challenge they would work on during the weekend event of November 19 and 20.
The teams developed the solutions following the Design Thinking methodology, to present them on Sunday with a pitch in front of the judges of each challenge. The winning teams were:
- Company challenge: Fénix team, made up of David Alfaro and Santi Aymerich, together with Linghao Feng and Kenny Wang.
- Startup challenge: Together Safer team, formed by Victor Antràs, Sebastian Reyes, Ian Roche and Roger Vidal.

For his part, Mario Aldabó, students of the Degree in Business Administration and Innovation Management with teaching in English, pointed out: "The event will help us on the way to being professionals of the future."
