A briefing session moderated by JUNITEC on Faber’s Entrepreneurship Program in partnership with Técnico will take place on January 25, at 5.30 p.m., in the Civil Engineering building (room V1.07).
Faber Entrepreneurship Program is aimed at masters and doctoral students of Técnico who want to learn how to transform innovative ideas into new businesses in technological areas through contact with entrepreneurs and investors. The program is also open to students with an interest in the topic even if they don’t have an innovative idea.
Applications are open until January 31.
The program includes two stages. Stage 1 comprises 12 weeks with 4-hour training sessions (from March to May 2023). Stage 2 comprises a summer internship at a start-up of Faber’s portfolio. Students can attend the 12 training weeks (stage 1) or the 12 training weeks and the summer internship (stage 1+ stage 2). Access to the program is free and does not require students to have a previous idea to develop.
The sessions of stage 1 will take place in a hybrid format (with some sessions online and some sessions face-to-face). Participants may attend all the sessions remotely. Técnico will also provide a room for participants, at Alameda Campus, for all sessions of stage 1 (every Thursday afternoon) during remote or face-to-face sessions.
Currently, the program is not automatically awarded credit recognition at Técnico. However, students may request ECTS credits for the activity according to Técnico’s rules for extracurricular activities.
Candidate selection will be based on the student’s CV and motivation to participate in the program.
