BE YOUNG BE ENTREPREUNER is the slogan of Startup Super School a startup created by a team of friends to give young people the desire to create a startup by a simple idea.
Their goal is to allow young people to collaborate and build upon their ideas; creating their own future in innovative ecosystems!
Their target is High School students and College students, starting from age fourteen and pursuing a diverse range of majors.
Students will be immersed in two days of training and challenges learning the startup culture and having fun! They will do the Training on first day and the Competition on the second day where they will explain their ideas and find a team to build a pitch for the competition.
The project "MEDIA" has positively impacted my students at all levels in a wide number of contexts and as a continuation a School Work Alternation system with "Startup Super School"
will be included in our school programme at "Fermi-Eredia" in Catania in order to facilitate the entrance of our students into the work world .
