The Student Startup BOOST Camp will launch you into the world of startups. In just 2.5 days, you will meet the very best mentors and learn how to think like an entrepreneur to launch your very own company.

You will have opportunities to share experiences with the other teams across the 5 institutions, collaborate on question and answers sessions and compete for a prize.
