The student startup trip brings together a group of high potential students in a world-class startup hub somewhere on the globe. Here they will be inspired to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams, soak up the vibe of the city, learn from the whole experience and bring it home with them.



They are dared to take the plunge and discover the whole ecosystem: startups, innovative companies, incubators, accelerators, investors, entrepreneurs, etc. We want to give them the opportunity to learn from both successes and mistakes and spot trends across different industries and continents.
