The Estonian Student Startup Camp (ESSC) is an intensive tech entrepreneurship boot-camp designed to arm students with skills and inspiration to launch technology-related ventures. The program is built and delivered by startup entrepreneurs from Estonia and abroad who collaborate to create a hands-on learning experience.
The course is built around turning student ideas into teams and into working prototypes. This is facilitated by intensive mentoring, hands-on talks on specific topics around launching a tech startup and inspirational talks by #Estonianmafia founders, including people behind Testlio, Weekdone, Mooncascade and many more.
The boot-camp is aimed at students from Estonia, Latvia and elsewhere with a background in IT, engineering, design, marketing and business. The camp also welcomes participants from other disciplines, especially those who bring along with them novel ideas and an entrepreneurial can-do attitude. Every participant will be able to pitch an idea for the camp and/or join an idea one likes the most.
Students enrolled in Estonian higher-education institutions may obtain 3 ECTS for successful participation in the camp. Please tick the "3 ECTS" box in the registration form if you wish to obtain credit points.
To participate, you need to apply before 15 January 2016.
Notifications of admission to the startup camp will be sent within one week of submitting the application.
