The European Innovation Academy (EIA) is a unique and intensive entrepreneurship study abroad program that provides you with the resources, connections, and mentors necessary to build a successful startup.
This program fosters an environment that will provoke the way you think and provide you with a powerful network of like-minded thinkers. In this hands-on entrepreneurship program, students from more than 70 countries create their startup just in 3 weeks.
The program is created for students of any major. In 5-member interdisciplinary teams, students develop an idea of a product or a service, then prototype and validate the idea in real life, launch it to the global market and learn how to pitch to investors.
Each day begins with an exceptional keynote speech from professionals from the field. The keynote session is followed by independent teamwork and mentoring sessions.
Having participants from all over the world, students will build an invaluable international network among themselves and have the opportunity to meet with top business professionals and academics.
The program has been developed through joint partnerships with professionals from the world’s top institutions including Stanford University, U.C. Berkeley, and Google.
