On September the 2nd, America House organized a Live Stream on Facebook, about the “Startup Universities” Program, presented by the special guest, Maria Nemciuc.
Starting in September, 40 students from the universities of Chisinau, Balti, Comrat, and Cahul will benefit from “Startup universities”. This program is part of the “Startup Academy” program, developed by TEKWILL, with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Sweden. This educational initiative is meant to stimulate the potential of the younger generations for the development of the national economy.
Maria Nemciuc explained that the program has the mission to teach young people how to develop a startup company head-to-tail, starting from the idea, brainstorming, beneficiaries, to contouring the final product, through presentations, with description and applicability.
The “Startup universities” program lasts 12 weeks, during which participants will have 12 modules, such as Startup ecosystem, evaluation of ideas with their competitive analysis, consumer segmentation, “Problem – Solution – Product” process, sponsorship, funds, and investments. Each student will have trackers and mentors, who will watch their evolution and help them at every phase of the program, providing them with support and the proper solutions.
Students will benefit from the “Startup universities” program by accumulating knowledge and experiences, and in the end, they will be able to transform their final product into their own business.
