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.
