European Innovation Academy
European Innovation Academy has become a recognized leader in tech entrepreneurship education. Our non-profit, educational programs are developed through joint partnerships with professionals from the world’s top institutions; to include Stanford University, U.C. Berkeley, and Google.
Our student body, full of future entrepreneurs and business leaders, becomes immersed in a multicultural ecosystem of over 15,000 alumni and faculty hailing from more than eighty-five countries.
To me Innovation Academy represents a community of entrepreneurs that span across the globe. Entrepreneurs, investors, university partners, corporate partners - the full spectrum of what it takes to really push forward the ecosystem of the global startup community.
In the programs of Innovation Academy the development of technology is a social thing. Magic happens when you put a diverse group into a room together to work on a common idea.
MacEwan University has enjoyed a partnership with the European Innovation Academy (EIA) since 2016. The EIA is an educational platform that provides students with a once in a life time educational experience. Our students have said that the experience is more than the amazing speakers, access to the best mentors and the focused entrepreneurial methodology taught. It is also what they learn about themselves through the immersion into a new culture, the intercultural team development and learning about failure and resilience. The experience for our students has unleashed the entrepreneur within for many and for others it provided a new lens to create value in the work they do.
The programs of Innovation Academy enable talented individuals to start building on their dreams.

The programs of Innovation Academy teach the future leaders the right way of how to pursue innovation in a company. The participants will learn to experiment and be very value driven at the same time - it is the right skillset to move forward.
