In a structured and coordinated program, a carefully selected group of up to 30 top-tier students per batch is offered an experiential learning opportunity, enabling them to come up with groundbreaking solutions to future challenges occurring in the pace of the digital revolution.

We believe

that guiding and inspiring the next generation of brilliant and innovative minds is one of the most important tasks to promote technical progress

that innovation does not know skin color or gender and requires bringing young innovative minds from diverse backgrounds together

that everyone can come up with the next game changing innovation when encouraged to always challenge the status quo

“If you are going to make connections which are innovative, you have to not have the same bag of experiences as everyone else does.

- Steve Jobs
