Startup Turbo 2017 edition

This year we want to encourage change makers, mentors and powerful ideas to be able to face the new challenge 2017: Social Innovation!

Startup Turbo it’s an anual competition, made by and for students where you’ll be able to explore the world of innovation and entrepreneurship as you’d never done before.

During a whole weekend you’ll be able to create, develop and design your idea. How? By coming together with students of different universities and fields such as: Business, design and engineering.

Create the most passionate team by joining with other participants and building up your project together. All the resources will be provided to inspire and help you in every step that you take in the process: from mentors, to workshops and entrepreneurial tools.

Startup founders will help you in this process: Advising, guiding and explaining the considerations that you should bear in mind.
