Create a digital experience, digitally

We are seeing the current situation as a chance to accelerate all the digital tools and technologies out there. At our Startup Class, we want to give you a unique digital experience of a summer school.

You and your team will start an online collaboration and digitally develop a prototype. You can feel like a CEO from the comfort of your own home. We will use diverse tools to make this experience as smooth, exciting, and educational as possible. Most of the sessions will take place online. Still, we are working on physical events so you can get to know each other much better.
