Course aim

When you join one of the CREA Summer Academies, you start with an idea and a vision, and go out with an entrepreneurial attitude together with a great start-up experience.

In CREA we turn ideas into great teams and great start-ups.

You will be provided with an all-around training that brings you from the identification of market opportunities, to the conceptualization, planning, and start-up of a new venture.
You will study theories and practices from Creativity, Technology and Entrepreneurship, demonstrating the value of design thinking, business modeling, innovation, customer validation and creative process. You will also get coaching on team skills and intercultural cooperation.

The best teams compete in an international Business Contest, which will be held during a big event in Europe in the fall of 2016!
