Do you want to have fun in summer?

eClub wants to work closer with students teams in the eClub Summer Camp. We want to help creating startups or finding for you an interesting industrial project. I have prepared a short questionnaire to find out your interests.

I am planning with all the eClubbers new Summer Camp.  During the summer vacations we want to put together a community of students of  Czech Technical Universities. We are envisioning to incubate teams having their own plans as well as students interested in developing projects in various fields of IT. The project you can chose from are coming from our industrial partners. The reason is simple, we want you to deliver something what is real, what is solving a practical problem. We also want to work with startupers, specifically early stages.

The eClub Summer Camp will be located in the campus of the CVUT Dejvice in very well equipped rooms. The CVUT MediaLab will support us with scholarships. We will invite many industry experts to help you with your projects. You will meet your peers and have a great fun.

Right now we need your help. We want to know your interests. For this purpose I have prepared a questionnaire with few questions. Fill it in, please and join us for a wonderful summer!

eClub Summer 2014 plan

The big news is we are preparing a students incubator for the summer season. eClub will again organize meetings and a competition for the best projects, we will deepen our support to industrial projects. Join us at the opening presentation on Monday Feb 24.

The eClub main endeavor is supporting students of the Czech technical universities. eClub started three years ago with a series of educational and motivational presentations. We helped putting together more than sixty presentations. We organized competitions for best startup plans and thanks to the CVUT MediaLab, we have awarded the winners with almost two million CZK in scholarships.   

The Czech startup landscape is changing. There are many more new startups at universities, new incubators, there are more opportunities for new entrepreneurs. eClub mission is to make the university teams more successful, we want to help them in the earliest most difficult phase on the road to success. To achieve this, I believe, we need to work with the teams more closely, bring in more mentors and this is one of the main reasons why we are introducing the eClub Summer Camp. Our plan is to offer the teams a unique opportunity to work in an in incubator just in the middle of the university campus in Dejvice with the benefits of  meeting other teams, discussing with industry leaders, mentors and etc. I am really looking forward.

I am meeting many students and I have noticed they are frequently complaining about useless scholarly exercises ending in a drawer. Many have great ideas and want to work on them. Other want solving real industrial problems but do not have the opportunity to find what is really needed. To react on this needs eClub is supporting the newly created the Industry Cooperation Portal working with industrial partners. The goal is to offer a large choice of projects in one place and connect companies with students. If you do not have your own project choose some from the portal. eClub will in a form of a scholarship support students working on these projects in the eClub Summer Camp. Stay tuned and follow the eClub web for the details.  I can promise,  you will get the best working environment, you will meet with your colleagues, experts, mentors and enjoy working on your projects. Do not hesitate and plan to join us.

We will go through all these news during the first eClub presentation in this season next Monday Feb 24 at 6:00 pm. Come and join us you will learn more, you can ask questions. Follow us on the eClub pages
