What Does the Fellow Program
Expect From Fellows?

Fellows are eligible to become fellows, leaving thousands of people behind after a tough selection process. Giving back, participating and spreading this inspiration while benefiting from the unique and unlimited opportunities of the Entrepreneurship Foundation are their most important responsibilities.


Most of the events within the Fellow Program are mandatory. Our fellows are only allowed to miss one Fellow Up event. After that, they are excluded from the program with the decision of our Board Members.

Startup Ambassadors

The program participants will act as “startup ambassadors” in their own universities in order to propagate the culture of entrepreneurship by creating a multiplier effect.


As part of the Giveback culture, fellows are writing a minimum of 3 blog posts from their experiences including the events they attend.
