About Startup Pirates:
Startup Pirates is an intense and fast paced one-week program that enables aspiring young entrepreneurs to get inside the startup world and learn how to develop a business idea. It combines hands-on workshops, mentoring and idea development with a clear focus on accelerating the development of early stage entrepreneurs. In the end, the teams will have the opportunity to pitch to investors and successful business leaders and receive prizes that enable them to continue to work on their business idea.
Who can apply:
- People from any background and expertise who are seeking education in entrepreneurship and are willing to join a team to help develop a business idea.
- People with a potential business idea that are looking for validation and a team to work with. Be ready to pitch to your landlubber-y peers!
- People with a startup at a very early stage of development (with no product developed) that need a kick-start.
