The Summer Entrepreneurship Training (SET) is a training and mentoring event specifically designed for students who are really passionate about entrepreneurship. What makes SET such a special event is that it consists out of an online course and two different modules, each taking place in a different location, a different university and focusing on a different aspect of entrepreneurship.

15 students from all over the world get the chance to experience a very unique event that provides information and knowledge about how to start-up a business. Through lectures and workshops from international professors, trainers and business people, we ensure that our participants receive a high quality education. In groups of 3 they work on their own business model. With the newly acquired knowledge they generate their own business idea and develop a professional business model with the help of experienced mentors who will be coaching the teams throughout the event. At the end of the event, the teams will present their fully developed business models to a jury consisting of mentors, entrepreneurs and professors and an online auditorium. During the Gala Dinner, SET students and professionals, business people and professors will have the opportunity to connect with each other and widen their network.


Agenda Minho - 8th to 15th July

Minho is establishing it self as one of the capitals of entrepreneurship of Portugal, with more and more businesses being built, and more and more students leaving the corporate job behind, and focusing on growing their dream company. There is no better place to inspire the real values of the dynamic life of an entrepreneur, and maybe boost your idea to greatness.



Agenda Porto - 15th to 21st July

As the “birth place” of some Portugal’s leading entrepreneurs, the University of Porto combines a deep commitment to the economic exploitation of its research activities with the highest levels of scientific production. Furthermore, development and innovation walk side by side to promote the socio-economic development of the city and the country as one. Come visit the city of innovation!



Participation Fee

Information about the participation fee is not final yet, as the fundraising process is still ongoing. With the current budget and fundraised money it will be maximum of 175€ (with everything in the program included; food, accommodation, activities, travels between and within the cities).

We want to create a life-changing event for students having different backgrounds, our fundraising team is working really hard to decrease the participation fee as much as possible.
