EWOR is the first blended learning school to educate minds to successfully launch a business.

We started in 2017 with the idea to create a system that allows people to build companies next to universities and their jobs. We wanted to foster innovation and the entrepreneurial drive of talented individuals.

There is a lack of education and resources on how to build a venture, and we believe that entrepreneurship cannot be taught ‘the ordinary way’. After experimenting with several approaches, we launched the EWOR Fellowship.

All of our alumni succeeded and are currently running ventures, while more Fellows follow in their footsteps. To support more aspiring entrepreneurs with the education and resources they need to succeed, we followed up with the EWOR Academy.

EWOR combines traditional and modern learning approaches by providing customised online training, which unites the flexible easy-to-follow curriculum of a traditional school with new learning-by-doing approaches. Learners are able to fully customise their curriculum according to their needs and receive feedback from senior entrepreneurs and peers alike during their journey.

What is EWOR’s Education Philosophy?

EWOR’s education philosophy follows the challenge-driven learning approach. This means that at EWOR individuals don’t just memorize theories, but learn solutions to practical problems in real-time.

Our goal is to turn you into a self-driven individual who excels under typical conditions startups find themselves in, such as volatility, uncertainty, chaos, and ambiguity. Our mission is to help hundreds of thousands of individuals to build companies that make positive change.

EWOR provides you with a learning platform and resources for all the challenges and obstacles you will encounter during your entrepreneurship journey. The knowledge we provide can directly be applied in your own business and help you learn in a more efficient and fun way.

In comparison with a traditional university, you’ll have more flexibility and freedom of choice. You can focus on learning the skills you need to make your business grow right now, rather than spending months studying abstract concepts that may or may not be useful in the future.

Additionally, the tools and services used are suggested by successful entrepreneurs themselves. We have collected them to provide you with additional materials once you join our platform.

What are EWOR’s Programmes?

EWOR currently offers two programmes: Academy & Fellowship

Both programmes help individuals launch successful companies. It provides them with a complete education package, which walks young entrepreneurs through all the stages of launching a venture.

Once you join, you will have the opportunity to learn from founders of successful startups, global CEOs, and reputed experts worldwide. You’ll also network within a community of highly exceptional individuals.

The EWOR FELLOWSHIP

About the EWOR Fellowship

The EWOR fellowship is a 10-month sponsored programme to access the EWOR education platform and receive online classes and mentorship from senior entrepreneurs and other highly motivated peers. The fellowship is highly selective and allows you to network and start your own business in an environment of excellence. So far, all of our alumni are running successful ventures.

Eligibility Criteria

Anyone residing within the European Union is eligible to apply for the EWOR Fellowship. The acceptance rate is fairly low to keep the batch size below 10 people for better individual support. One or two rounds of interviews are usually conducted before getting accepted to the programme. To become an EWOR Fellow, you don’t need to have a business idea. However, you must be ready to start your own business and commit at least 20 hours per week to starting your venture and scaling it.

Purpose

With the EWOR fellowship, you will be building your own venture. You will learn to develop entrepreneurship skills such as web development, communications skills, networking and many more. You will have access to a renowned community of educators and entrepreneurs and get valuable guidance from them.

You will be assigned a partner company that will provide you with industry knowledge and support. While the Fellowship can be done entirely remotely, your partner company will provide you with free office space for the perfect working environment to generate fresh ideas.

Upon successful completion of the programme, you’ll receive a certificate and you’ll be running your first venture.

The EWOR ACADEMY

About the EWOR ACADEMY

The EWOR Academy is an 8-week online programme with one year of access to the EWOR education platform.

During these 8 weeks, you’ll attend at least three weekly sessions where you will learn everything you need to know for running your own business. These sessions are conducted by our in-house experts and guest lecturers who consist of global CEOs, unicorn founders, serial entrepreneurs, and renowned professors.

During and after these 8 weeks, you’ll be able to network with other highly motivated peers who go through the same stages to support and help each other out. It’s a good opportunity to find your partner and future Co-Founder during the EWOR Academy.

You’ll have access to our education platform and resources, such as free legal templates, business plan templates, and other useful materials.

Eligibility Criteria

The EWOR Academy usually takes place in class sizes of around 50 learners. It involves filling out an application form and one round of interviews. The EWOR Academy is perfect if you’re already running your own startup. However, you don’t need to run a business to join it.

Purpose

The purpose of the EWOR Academy is to help build and grow a successful venture by providing you with great learning materials from experts and immersing you in a network of highly motivated (future) founders.

Upon successfully finishing the course, you’ll receive a certificate signed by reputed founders and experts.
