The start-up area can be described with the following words: solving a problem, product-market fit, hackathons, MVP, considering the input and feedback from clients and users, fundraising. Startup Entrepreneurship is an intense learning-by-doing curriculum where you'll learn business by building your own innovative company. The programme taught at Estonian Entrepreneurship University of Applied Sciences is unique and Estonia being e-country has a great start-up ecosystem, where to be a founder of your own company. This program is for you if you are proactive and willing to work hard towards building your own startup company.

Unlike the many accelerators and shorter programs out there, Startup Entrepreneurship offers an in-depth three-year program covering all phases of a startup's growth. Previously we have cooperated with TransferWise, Bolt, PipedriveGoworkabitFortumoLike A Local and Toggl. In 2019 we worked with Startup Estonia, Goworkabit, Clanbeat, Subatomic, CoModule, Fanvestory,  Lingvist, Innovation Academy, Cin Cin Bubble Tea, Elisa and Tele2.

It is best to already have an idea that you want to work on when applying or come to the idea through the events we have in Estonia during the first semester. You can also be a co-founder of the company. Throughout your journey from ideation and business model design to hiring and rapid growth management, you'll be encouraged to work on your own idea through all your subjects. 

During your studies, you will take some subjects with Creative and Business Innovation students and some only with Start-up Entrepreneurship students. You are expected to put all your knowledge into practice and register and establish at least one company with a customer base and money flow. You can also be a co-founder with another person. If you are motivated enough, you can meet a lot of accomplished people from across Europe and the world and build a solid professional network already while you study. By the end of the program, you'll have a background of most probably several entrepreneurial ventures, setting you in a league of your own compared to your theoretically-taught peers from traditional business schools. Entrepreneur-minded students have the ability to continue as an entrepreneur or become a project manager or product manager inside a bigger company.
