IdeaLab projects


NGAL ® (Network Globally, Act Locally) is an intensive hands-on business development program for early stage student teams.  The program starts with the boot camp at UT IdeaLab and ends with a launch-camp in Charleston, USA. At the final day, teams pitch to judges, Charleston-area entrepreneurs, and the best teams will be awarded. 

NGAL ® is an ambitious, high-impact business development program linking five universities across countries and cultures through student-centered entrepreneurship. It is an intense, impactful, summer immersion and travel abroad program for students who are company founders and who wish to plan to take their company to scale.  

The program enables you to develop your business idea and MVP together with student teams from two Estonian and three US universities: University of Tartu and Tallinn University of Technology, College of Charleston, The Citadel (Military College of South Carolina) and Nebraska Wesleyan University. The project is financed by Harry and Reba Huge Foundation. 

Applying for NGAL ® 4.0 starts in February 2018!
