Where students from all fields explore entrepreneurship

Innovation Boot Camp is an entrepreneurial boot camp, exploring what it means to run your own business.

This fall we visit six universities across all of Sweden, welcoming students from all programs and disciplines to participate in a 48-hour crash course seeking new business solutions to the UN Global Goals.

During three intensive days, you will work together in teams of 4 to develop innovative and impactful business solutions to the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Guided by the local business sector, you will gain the tools to kickstart your journey and the network to continue your growth.

Wrapping up the weekend, you and your team will get a chance to present and get feedback on your idea from our jury, which will grant the sharpest teams with the opportunity to join us in San Fransisco.

Don't miss this chance to grow your knowledge, extend your network and perhaps even travel the world.

The Application Deadline closes on the 17th of October.
