A program for Students.
Yes we believe that being a student is probably the best time to launch your first startup. Zuck, Bill Gates, Serguei and Larry, they all did it before you. Yes, if you are not in a top-tier university, it is also open to you. Because failing is a real asset to learn and become a great entrepreneur. We want the most motivated, talented people, the most hungry students to rock their startup. Not only to rock math equation or essays.
