Student Startup Camp 2018
The 5-day course consists of teamwork, intensive mentoring, hands-on talks on specific topics around launching a tech startup, visits to the startup and tech centres in Tartu and inspirational talks by the #EstonianMafia founders, including people behind Garage48, Fortumo and many more.
The boot camp is aimed at students from Estonia and elsewhere with a background in IT, engineering, design, marketing, and business. The camp also welcomes participants from other disciplines, especially those who bring along with them novel ideas and an entrepreneurial can-do attitude. Every participant will be able to pitch an idea for the camp and/or join an idea one likes the most.
Students enrolled in Estonian higher-education institutions may obtain 3 ECTS for successful participation in the camp. Please tick the "3 ECTS" box in the registration form if you wish to obtain credit points.
