TESTIMONIALS

  

Allison Schumacher

Virginia Commonwealth University
We get to engage and talk about entrepreneurship education. EIA gives us a space to really talk about what has worked and what has not. All universities are different, but we have a lot in common. We have to share our trade secrets to try to ease the process for both faculty and for students.

Neil Kane

Michigan State University
Attending EIA was a fabulous and rewarding experience. The caliber of the instructors and mentors, who came from around the world, were top notch. I benefited greatly and made some valuable connections in addition to learning a lot. World-class instructors, engaged, motivated students and a great location, what could be better?

Harold Wright

University of Alabama
The European Innovation Academy has been a wonderful addition to the portfolio of study abroad offerings for The University of Alabama. For students, it is a great exercise in teaching how to be comfortable with ambiguity. I have seen real growth in our students who attend EIA. From a personal standpoint, EIA allows me a chance to interact with global thought leaders from both academia and industry. The keynotes and networking opportunities offer me a chance to not only learn about new trends in innovation and entrepreneurship but also how to package these learnings for delivery in the classroom. EIA-Portugal 2020 will be our fourth consecutive year of attendance at EIA. We continue to grow our participation at a double-digit pace. EIA is a valuable experience for both students and educators.

The program provides an entrepreneurship school in a setting that doesnt depend on the lectures and text books. We build companies here and learn by doing. Everybody rolls up their sleeves and builds companies from scratch.

Ken Singer

UC Berkeley
A fantastic program for people who are exploring the possibility of starting their own company. The program mimics the exact process that an actual entrepreneur would go through. You learn really quickly what you are really good at and what are the things you need to work on. You cant read it in a book. Experiential learning in EIA allows you to make these decisions on your own so you start realizing it is not that easy.

In EIA 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. In EIA the students are doing the same as accelerators try to do in 3-6 months and I am amazed of how much comes out and how many projects are actually working after such a short time. Impressive!

Ravi Belani

Alchemist Accelerator
EIA is destinctive on a couple of dimensions: first - it is truly experiential. The best way to learn entrepreneurship is to get out of the classroom and jump into immersive experience. And secondly the cultural experience during these tree weeks is also incredible. You are working with cross-cultural teams from different backgrounds that brng a diverse set of experiences - it can be really important from the business perspective, but more importantly its just a lot of fun!

Luke Kim

UC Berkeley
To me EIA 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.
