Learning is not static
In university, you study extensive theoretical concepts only to discover that most of what you need is not important. At EWOR, you work from day one to solve real-world challenges. You build your product, and when you need more knowledge you have access to our content. None of our courses are mandatory! We conceive learning as a map to find your way, not as a curriculum.
Co-developed by Business Leaders, Top Academics and Incredible founders
The EWOR scholarship is developed in collaboration with the brightest minds in the field of education, entrepreneurship, and investment.
Backed by an established corporation
One of our partner companies will provide you with their office space, facilities, industry-specific know-how, and mentoring. [At the start of the program, they will present you with an innovation problem that will serve as the base for your startup. This system helps you achieve product-market fit quicker and succeed with your venture in no time.]
