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 San Francisco, and before that London. Both trips were highly appreciated by the companions as well as the companies we visited.
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.

From 7th – 16th of December we will cross continents to take a deep dive in everything that Asia has to offer. During 8 exciting days, we will visit several companies in Singapore – well established & leading companies as well as young startups. In a combination between tech-startup, incubators and chambers of commerce, we will learn about entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship, internationalization, how it is to start a business in Asia, how to get investors & how to work with innovation within both small & large companies.
Singapore also happens to be one of the worlds most business-friendly environments. The city is small but dense and has been ranked as the second-best place to start a technology-based business in Asia. We will get a first-hand look at what makes Singapore such an attractive place for foreign businesses through funding programs, world-known co-working spaces, incubators and ultra-high-speed fiber-optic infrastructure.

EA MEETS LONDON
In a couple of days, we went around London and met the people behind successful start-ups. We met entrepreneurs and start-ups from different industries, including environmental technology company Powervault, investment company Seedcamp, and crowdfunding company Seedrs, which developed a platform that allows private individuals to invest in start-ups. We also visited Google’s entrepreneurship hub, Google for Entrepreneurs, and Oxford University’s Entrepreneurship Association and linked contacts.

EA MEETS BERLIN
The first time: 2013
Twelve excited students from Uppsala University got the opportunity to go on an inspiration trip with Entrepreneurs Academy. We visited one of Europe’s hottest start-up scenes of modern time: Berlin.
For three intense days, the students met twelve different companies and the people behind. The trip began with a morning visit at Adeven, we discussed what bootup really is and Adeven co-founder and CTO, Paul, told us about their industry experience. After lunch, we visited Payango, which in cooperation with VISA delivers prepaid VISA cards to Germans. Amongst other things, we got told how it feels to be a young and small company and to work with a giant like VISA. The day ended with a visit to SoundCloud, a success story in the music industry and which founder is Swedish. They told us about how the company has gone from being a handful of employees to nearly two hundred today – and the consequences that come with success.
