The Student Startup Camp (SSC) is back in Tartu! Together with University of Tartu and Idea Lab we are bringing you the annual entrepreneurship bootcamp designed to build your idea into a working prototype and to learn the basics of launching a tech startup. You will be guided through the most important steps by active startup entrepreneurs and trainers who collaborate to create a hands-on learning experience.
The 6-day course consists of team work, 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, Weekdone, Mooncascade and many more.
The bootcamp 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.
