>> At the end of the two weeks program, a qualified jury selects the two best business ideas emerging from each national summer academy that will participate to the CREA International Business Idea Contest.
>> In the following months teams keep developing their ideas receiving support through online mentoring. With the help of our experienced coaches, they prepare for the final pitches at the CREA Business Contest.
>> Finally the best ideas selected from the Summer Academy will participate to the CREA International Business Idea Contest and pitch their project in front of investors. Winning participants have the chance to be introduced to incubators all over Europe.
CREA offers seven Summer Academies at leading Universities across Europe.
Their shared goal is to support fresh new venture ideas that combine entrepreneurship with ICT and creativity as the drivers for innovation.
Furthermore, each Summer Academy offers a specific area of expertise, which enables students to select the course that suits their idea best.
