Join in and be up there in September 2020 when it says “Welcome to California“.  Up to 12 students will have the possibility to collect unforgettable experiences in founding and innovation. All you need is a team, an idea and the motivation to becoming a winner team of the Kilometer 1 Idea Cup 2020.

It all starts with the flight to San Francisco in order to move to our domicile near to the Bay-Area. Within our trip we will have the possibility to exchange views with innovative enterprises and start-ups as well as with universities world wide known for founders coming from there. In workshops and creativity sessions we will get closer to the mindset of Silicon Valley. In addition tours and excursions to the local area are planned. Besides Silicon Valley also San Francisco, Berkeley, the near cost with Santa Cruz and the great nature are suitable for further activities.
