Startup Boost Weekend: Armenian students invited to apply

Start-up Boost Weekend
22/02/2019 to 24/02/2019

The EU4Business SMEDA project is supporting the fourth Start-up Boost Weekend in Armenia from 22-24 February, 2019. This time, the weekend will be held at the Yerevan State University for around 120 students from a total of 6 partner universities.

The Start-up Boost Weekend is aimed to promote entrepreneurial thinking among students. During the three-day event, students from different universities will have the opportunity to work together, create teams, generate ideas and try to implement them through integration into start-up culture. Participants will have a chance to meet and work with experienced mentors, entrepreneurs, and investors, and pitch their idea to an experienced jury.  The best projects will be awarded with prizes.

The event is a unique opportunity for students with different skills – software developers, designers, entrepreneurs, marketers, product managers, start-up enthusiasts – to come together to team up and build new start-ups.

Start-up Boost Weekend is an event for the start-up community aiming at boosting entrepreneurship skills among university students. It is organised by Catalyst Foundation in partnership with Armenian universities and supported by EU-SMEDA project for the fourth time already.

The EU4Business SMEDA (Support to SME Development in Armenia) project supports the improvement of the business and investment climate for SMEs in Armenia. It aims to strengthen the private sector, support SME coordination mechanisms, and foster links between research institutions and the private sector, as well as providing access to finance for SMEs.
