For the Dutsch STARTIFY7 IT-driven social entrepreneurship academy, the organisers have brought the group of participants together with the CuriousU group for an even more exciting experience, filled with learning and exchange, and complemented with an integral fun element.

CuriousU is a programme developed by Twente University in Enschede, the Netherlands that combines an international summer school with the style of a festival. It consists of academic courses, music, sports, theatre and inspirational speakers. The track EntrepreneurialU is attractive for aspiring entrepreneurs already having a business idea or those willing to develop their entrepreneurial skills.

The group of over 80 young participants are attending an intensive programme where they compete in teams to deliver a winning business model supported by a concrete prototype, and learn about spotting winning business ideas, lean business planning and modelling, customer discovery, financing startups, pitching and other vital skills for entrepreneurs.
