The Student Startup Camp is a first of its kind event where students will be offered the opportunity to learn hands-on how to convert a technology idea into a startup plan. The event will be inter-disciplinary, gathering students from IT, business and digital design, from University of Tartu, IT College, Tallinn University of Technology, Tartu Art College and SSC Riga.
During a full week, teams of students, coached by experience mentors, will attempt to refine high-level problems and ideas into prototypes and business plans that they will pitch to a panel of successful entrepreneurs and angel investors during the closing session. The camp will also include a series of seminars covering topics ranging from rapid application development to marketing and social media. The event is organized by University of Tartu's Institute of Computer Science in collaboration with Garage48 Foundation.
