Academy Program – October to December 2016
All participants taking part in the bootcamp are invited to join the academy program, which will be a mix of case studies, inspirational talks (successful entrepreneurs, investors & CEOs) and concrete learnings on how to build a startup.
Idea behind the academy.
The purpose of the Academy is to introduce participants to the nature of business in emerging markets, the role of startups and technology in these economies, and the importance of social and sustainable business.
The academy is to be as interactive and practical as possible and will be structured around a group project, where teams develop business solutions that aim to improve selected indicators on the Social Progress Index. The project will be the main basis upon which Seedstars will make decisions regarding the offering of internships.
Participants will be aided in this endeavour by unique insights from leading experts, actual startups in emerging markets and high-wattage mentors.
All successful Academy participants will be awarded a Seedstars Certificate.
The final schedule is still in planning and is therefore subject to changes.
