At the end the course you have:

1)      Knowledge about entrepreneurial methods and mindset
2)      Hands-on experience in developing ideas
3)      Perspectives on how entrepreneurship can shape your future career



What is it about?

You will work with an idea that you either bring to the course, or generate in the beginning of the course. The perceived quality of the idea is not important.

The course applies both offline and online learning. You will receive text messages with a videolink in the period between the kickoff on 24 October and the launch on 9 November. The videos provide inspiration, tools and calls to action. This flexible setup allows you to reflect and act at your own pace.
