Startify7 is a two-year project that started on 1st of January 2015. The core challenge for STARTIFY7 is to connect with existing ICT enterprise training structures through our 7 thematic learning academies which will combine lean start-up training with team-building for young people. It will do this through:
The STARTIFY7 Summer Academies will drive self-actualisation as the biggest stimulus in the learning process and foster the conditions for young entrepreneurs to flourish. It will create a dynamic learning environment by having a training rationale that will focus on quickly testing hypotheses, gathering early and frequent feedback, and developing “minimum viable products”. Thus, the training will place strong emphasis on learning-by-doing and will promote action learning rather than passive listening.
Over the summers of 2015 and 2016 there will be 7 academies:
2015 Summer Academies
Proposed 2016 Summer Academies
The Startify7 project is run by a consortium of 11 partners: The University of Sheffield, Associazione Trento RISE, Friederich-Alexander University, University of Almeria, South East European Research Center, University of Twente, University of Economics in Katowice, European Confederation of Young Entrepreneurs, UnternehmerTUM GmbH, Europe Unlimited SA, i4G.
