What Makes The EWOR Programmes So Special?

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 different approaches, we launched the EWOR Fellowship.

All of our alumni succeeded and are currently running ventures, while more Fellows are following 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 customized online training, which unites the easy to follow the flexible curriculum of a traditional school with new learning-by-doing approaches. Learners are able to fully customize 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 is following the challenge-driven learning approach. This means that at EWOR individuals do not 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 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 much more efficient and fun way.

In comparison with a traditional university, you will have much more flexibility and freedom of choice where 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 by providing 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, reputed experts worldwide, as well as network within a community of highly exceptional individuals.
