Aalto Fellows

–the window to your future –

Do you want to become the next Steve Jobs? Then this is not the course for you. Steve Jobs was not looking to become the next anything –neither should you. We want to help you become the best version of yourself, and help you leverage startup ecosystems on a systemic level. Entrepreneurship is about attitude but it also boils down to understanding enough about the status quo to disrupt it. Our aim is to guide you through the current structures in the startup world to allow you to build your wildest dreams.

The Aalto Fellows Program is a six-month study and work program designed to develop a theoretical and practical understanding of entrepreneurship. Whether you are completely new to the startup world, or have been immersed in it for years, you are guaranteed to learn a lot. The application for 2020 opens in January!
