Fantastic StartUps and How to Build Them


BEST Almada present at NOVA FCT is one of 96 local groups of BEST - Board of European Students of Technology - present in 34 European countries. The main focus is to provide complementary education with the help of stakeholders such as NOVA FCT, companies and institutional partners.

From the 17th to the 26th of July, BEST Almada is organizing a summer course entitled “Fantastic StartUps and How to Build Them”. The main objective of this course is to promote the spirit of entrepreneurship in students and give them the necessary tools to create and understand how a startup works today. With this course, students will have the opportunity to share their cultures, perspectives and ideas, while learning from DEMI and UNIDEMI professionals.
The course will be attended by 22 students from all over Europe, promoting a multicultural experience. BEST Courses have main components: academic, social and cultural.
The academic part will be guaranteed by 4 DEMI teachers and UNIDEMI researchers: Aneesh Zutshi, Ana Sofia Esteves, Belma Rizvanović and Fernanda Llussá. The course will also include a visit to the Madan Parque startup incubator and a panel discussion about startups.
The cultural and social part of the event includes visits to Lisbon, Sintra and Almada, as well as sporting activities such as Bungee Jumping and Surfing, with the main objective of sharing Portuguese culture while participants share their culture.
