What are we doing?

Supporting students during the initial steps of starting their own business. Providing students with a guided journey from idea to prototype. We do this through 8 (off-class) sessions that provide students with the tools needed to structure and validate their business ideas. Moreover, we encourage students to join weekly one-to-one mentoring sessions to receive personalized feedback.

A problem-based, action-oriented program focused on training leaders in the growing challenges of society.

Nova SBE Summer School: Beyond the Atlantic four-week international program bringing together students from the United States of America and Europe to experience and support the Portuguese startup ecosystem. For one month, students receive the tools needed to work in teams to try and solve a specific challenge or need of the startup they are working with.

Entrepreneurship Study Trips provide a profound learning experience that usually takes place away from the classroom, the School, and even Portugal. These allow students to visit Startup Hubs around the world, learn and be inspired by other cultures, successful entrepreneurs, challenging businesses, and expand their network.

What does the future hold?

A three-month intensive training program, which will provide work experience, mentoring, and workshops on specific skills and tools required by new startup creators. This will prepare students to join a startup team and start adding value immediately.

What have we done?

A program that brought together students and startups from the Zero Gravity Acceleration Program, Batch#1. Each student worked side by side with one of the companies, supporting them in whatever was required. This was valued by the startup teams and represented a meaningful learning experience for students.
