How does spending three days in a creative space, coding and competing against some of the world’s most talented tech students sound?
START Hack is Europe’s leading hackathon for aspiring tech entrepreneurs! At START Hack, we foster deep entrepreneurial understanding — supercharging you to kick off your entrepreneurial career. This annual event is designed to bridge the gap between business and tech. At Hack, you’ll develop your knowledge with a range of insightful masterclasses and workshops. You’ll build connections, expand your network, showcase your skills and code to your heart’s content.
Thanks to our incredible industry-leading partners, the projects you start here can extend beyond the event and lead to something much bigger, including exciting job opportunities and the chance to carry your Hack project through to completion.
Are you up to the challenge?
Opportunities are rarely easy to come by. The background of founders and the opportunities available to entrepreneurs under 25 from low and middle income backgrounds stretches beyond just funding, which is priceless.
START Fellowship is the 8-month philanthropic accelerator program that contributes towards equal opportunities for young entrepreneurs from low and middle income countries.
We provide dedicated financial support for people under 25 and from lower to middle income backgrounds with a four-month stay in Switzerland — covering all the costs. Our Fellowship offers a guided pathway for students under 25 to become entrepreneurs. You’ll learn from the best in the business in workshops delivered by our external partners, develop your business skills in classes at the University of St. Gallen, network with experienced founders and like-minded entrepreneurs and receive expert mentorship and coaching every step of the way.
