Our History

risk-reduced entrepreneurship

We started in 2017 with the idea to create a system that allows people build companies next to universities and their jobs. 

After experimenting with several different approaches, we launched the EWOR Fellowship. Surprised by the success of our fellowship, we soon followed up with the EWOR Academy and Membership.

A new education system

Entrepreneurship cannot be taught ‘the ordinary way’. We have designed an award-winning learning map allowing you to study at your own pace and choose the direction for your personal learning path.

In over 15 courses designed by unicorn founders, serial entrepreneurs, professors from renowned institutions such as Cambridge and Stanford, coaches, and Global CEOs, we’ll teach you how to build a company.

Our Programs

Fellowship

A unique and exclusive 10-months program for overachievers designed to help you start a successful company, with individual coaching and support from a partnership corporation helping you achieve product-market fit quickly. We take a 3% equity stake.

Academy

A unique and exclusive 8-weeks program designed to cover the main areas of launching a business, such as fundraising, user testing, building products people enjoy, hiring your first employees and building a long-lasting organisation. We charge €1800.

Membership

Join our global community on Slack and get access to our platform counting over 17 courses designed by serial entrepreneurs and world-class coaches, 300 useful resources and templates, and our freelancer market place. We charge € 199 + € 19 monthly.
