We recruit the best and brightest students across Europe and help them form teams, develop ideas or build on existing ones. This means we accept all talented students, applying with or without their own idea. The minimum requirement? Business acumen, an entrepreneurial spirit and the drive to see ideas through to their execution. Edventure aims at building world-class teams with a range of complementary skills and abilities to build tomorrow's next big startups.
This is where it gets even more exciting! Teams compete for 10 weeks on the execution of their respective projects, presenting their progress in weekly sessions to the Edventure team and rest of the cohort. The 10-week competition is jam-packed with exciting workshops, personalized mentoring sessions and inspirational guest speakers on a range of pertinent topics for budding startups. The programme promises to be an incredible opportunity to bring to life the ideas of tomorrow.
After working intensively with the teams for 10 weeks, perfecting their pitches and getting them to the best possible position, the most promising startups from the competition will receive a unique opportunity to pitch to top investors. Startups who demonstrated the most progress will receive cash prices.
But Edventure doesn’t end with the last week of the competition. The Edventure team and its ever-growing network will continue to help programme alumni with their ideas for the lifetime of their company.
We organize epic events, workshops and talks with experts; share helpful resources and tools; and support our teams throughout their entrepreneurial journey, together with our amazing partners.
Universities are a hotspot for incredible ideas and talent. Edventure is the catalyst for turning those big ideas into an even bigger reality.
Together, we can design a better future and lead the present to reach it.
