ENTREPRENEURS ACADEMY MEETS SAN FRANCISCO
It has become a tradition…
Every year Entrepreneurs Academy organizes a trip to one of the world's most startup-dense cities. Last time we went to London, and before that Berlin. Both trips were highly appreciated by the companions as well as the companies we visited.
This year we are taking it one step further with an extra special destination: San Francisco. March 28th to April 4th we are heading across the pond, to delve into everything the American start-up hub has to offer. It will be a well-filled week, mixing business with pleasure. Visits at companies, start-ups as well as market leaders. We will spend time at JUSTforall, Spotify, Gavagai, Stanford University and Minerva University just to mention a few. Combined, of course with seeing the best parts of the pearl of California: San Francisco.
Our trip explores the opportunities and challenges related to the establishment of strategic partnerships. We are a highly networked group of individuals, with students from the highest ranked schools of Sweden.
HOW IT ALL STARTED...
Entrepreneurs Academy was founded in the spring of 2006 with the vision of becoming Sweden’s leading organization in conveying joy, inspiration and knowledge about entrepreneurship and business opportunities.
Today Entrepreneurs Academy organises the yearly Anders Wall lecture as well as inspiring events and lectures to fulfil the original vision - to be the leading organisation in spreading the entrepreneurial spirit among students in Sweden.
What ENTREPRENEURS ACADEMY DOES
The Anders Wall Lecture
The Anders Wall Lecture is hosted by Entrepreneurs Academy and the Anders Wall Foundation. It welcomes more than 2000 people each year, mostly students but also businesswomen and men. Some of the speakers has been former Prime Minister of Sweden Göran Persson, Stina Honkamaa at United Screens, the CEO of H&M Stefan Persson, Mia Brunell Livfors at Kinnevik and the founder of Skype Niklas Zennström amongst others.
The EA Podcast
One of the biggest trends right now in Sweden is podcasts, and we are definitely not going to let it pass by us. Therefore we launched a podcast with our own nisch where Moa and Åsa (active in Entrepreneurs Academy) are interviewing inspiring and successful Swedish entrepreneurs.
In favour of various charity associations we gather aspiring entrepreneurs to gain as much money as possible. Our course of action is letting people get together in groups and perform enterpreneurial actions during one day. The group that collects the most amount of money throughout the day wins.
The Female Startup Day
Twice a year we invite successful and inspiring female entrepreneurs to speak in front of an audience of about 50 people. The event is extremely appreciated by the audience.
