Programme // EIT Digital


The first week of the Summer School you will be introduced to the theory of the action lines by lecturers from the academic and business world. It will be network activities and introduction to the cases for the business development assignment. You will be divided into teams and start to work on the ideation phase and will by the end of the week present a value proposition and a revenue model.

The second week you will continue with team work turning the business idea into a viable business plan with start-up strategy, marketing and financial planning. You and your team will present a business plan at the end of the week in a final pitch in front of a business panel.

To bring the Summer School participants up to the same level of the basic understanding of Innovation and Entrepreneurship topics, an online starter-kit will be sent out before entering the following Summer School 2018.

If you are from the business community or the EIT Digital Alumni network, you have the possibility to choose to participate only the first week or complete the full two-week course.
