WHAT WE DID
The student gets an insight of what is needed to be an entrepreneur and to found a start-up. At the end of the two-weeks programme, a qualified jury selects the two best business ideas emerging from each of the six national Summer Academies, which can then participate in the ICT Business Idea Contest.
MENTORING AND PROTOTYPING
The student teams with the selected business ideas keep developing their idea in the following months. In doing so, they receive support through online mentoring. Between October and November the students are invited to a Rapid Prototyping Event to develop a first prototype of their idea.
ICT BUSINESS IDEA CONTEST
Finally the selected students and their teams from each national Summer Academy can participate in the ICT Business Idea Contest and are given the opportunity to pitch their idea in front of possible investors. Winning participants have the chance to be introduced to incubators all over Europe.
