New programs at Aurora Impact in 2021!

28.12.20

As we write this post, we are almost halfway through the program with the second Cohort of our pre-accelerator programme! We are very excited to see the number of applicants (and interest) rise for this program, as well as to see the different business ideas that people submit. However, we have also identified a need for another program – a program that offers people the chance to experience and learn about entrepreneurship, for those people that do not necessary already have a business idea in mind.

Therefore, Aurora Foundation will be launching a new program in January 2021. With a four-week ideation program, we aim to familiarize people with entrepreneurship and help them to identify a need in the market, with the goal to spark their interest in entrepreneurship. Twice a week, students will engage in group sessions to discover, test and validate a business idea.

Currently applications are open and people are welcome to apply via the link below. Any questions can be addressed to sr@aurorafoundation.is .
