In a global economy, where individuals, organisations and even nations are becoming ever more empowered, people will increasingly be required to take responsibility and ownership of their own lives. Our full-package summer school (food & tent/ camping included in the price!) is a unique chance to learn more about this topic. A modern society needs people who are able to recognize and seize opportunities. People who innovate, initiate and co-create. People who take action! In order to be prepared for tomorrow’s world, developing an entrepreneurial attitude and the skills required, is vital. Not only for aspiring entrepreneurs, but for every one of us!

So, join this track, if you want to discover if a career as an entrepreneur is for you, or explore if your business idea is viable, or if you want to learn to think and act like an entrepreneur. Supported by different workshops, entrepreneurial coaches and experts, you either build a coalition around your idea, or join a team that is working on something that you are passionate about. To spark up your business idea, you could first join one of the other summer school tracks for two days. At the end of the week, each team will pitch their working business concept to a panel of experts.

Connect to fun-to-be-with people from a variety of backgrounds and with a wide range of interests. Experience how you can shape your dreams for the future. In the CuriousU Entrepreneurship course!

Target group

Students with an entrepreneurial spirit. This course is also open for PhD students.
