Student Startup Trip?

(also for recent graduates)

The student startup trip is one of AFT’s most ambitious and high profile events. It has two main goals. First we aim to bring young entrepreneurs together in an open and inspirational environment. This allows them to meet like-minded people and to start building a professional network. Secondly we offer students the chance to learn what it means to be an entrepreneur and to lead a startup to success. These lessons will help them become better entrepreneurs later on.

We do this by selecting 30-40 high potential student (and recent graduate) entrepreneurs and travel with them to an interesting city. There we organise visits in cooperation with local technology startups. We aim to select startups in all different stages, such that the students get a better idea of the lifecycle companies go through while scaling-up.
