We are proud to work with UC Berkeley Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology – SCET to help hundreds of Berkeley students to find their entrepreneurial path at the European Innovation Academy (EIA).

In October 2018 EIA was featured in Berkeley News.

It was a stressor of an assignment for some 400 students at the European Innovation Academy (EIA) in Cascais, Portugal: Form diverse teams of five and, in just 15 days, create startups to pitch to a panel of investors, in hopes of launching the next Instagram or Airbnb. A few students, blanching in the face the world’s largest extreme entrepreneurship program, packed for home.

The clock began ticking for the rest, and the trendy Estoril Congress Center grew chaotic. At the Idea Expo, college students from 70 nations had three hours to shop, speed dating-style, for teammates and real-world problems to solve.
