A mix between a summer school and internship for students and a management learning journey for startups: that’s the Summerpreneurship by Impact Hub Zürich. Up to 30 startups from the growing impact sector are being matched with pre-selected, talented students during the matching phase of the Summerpreneurship.
Through the program the entrepreneurs will get support to drive their ventures to the next level: whether it’s getting support in HR related topics or regarding legal issues. Students also benefit from an education program, the so called Summerpreneurship Academy. The organizing team from Impact Hub strives to create a stimulating learning environment to foster learning through tailored workshops for students. Participating students will thus acquire new skills and get unique insights into the startup world.
Former startup participant Tom Strobl from Wildbiene und Partner says: «Thanks to Summerpreneurship we found Pere, a highly motivated and skilled student, who took responsibility and helped us grow. Plus, the integrated HR training taught us a lot about successful recruitment, enabling us to put it immediately into practice».
Summerpreneurship has been created and organized by Impact Hub Zürich since 2013. 2018 will be the 6th edition. Impact Hub is partnering with the University of Zurich, UBS and Swisscom. The application deadline for startups is March 25th. The program is taking place in Zurich.
