How are you going to handle the current global pandemic?
The trip is built entirely with the pandemic in mind. If the situation in april allows it we are ready to visit companies in a safe manner. If the situation in april doesn’t allow company-visits we bring the companies to our own basecamp in every city for a corona-proof company-explainer and talk. In the worst case we are prepared to stream the trip with professional livestreaming equipment to our participants. In the last case the length of the trip will be reduced.

How is the application process designed?
Your application will consist of 2 rounds. The first round consists of a form with a couple of questions. Based on these questions, we will pick 50 students who will continue to the second round. Here, you will be asked to make a short video. The final selection will be made after this round.
