What you need to know

Who can participate?

You need to be enrolled at one of those universities: Stuttgart Media University, Sapir College, University Politehnica of Bucharest or Universidad Nacional Autónoma México. If you are not enrolled at one of these universities, you are not eligible for the seasonal schools.

For further information you can check the general information at seasonal schools

How will you decide who is allowed to take part? What are the criteria?

This time it’s not about your grades! Yeah! Just make sure to be enrolled at Stuttgart Media University, Sapir College, University Politehnica of Bucharest or Universidad Nacional Autónoma México, write a comprehensive motivation letter and fulfill the other requirements mentioned here.

What about COVID-19 and the Mission:Enterprise seasonal school?

The number of corona-infected people is increasing worldwide. So it is clear that an internationally oriented project like Mission:Enterprise is also affected by this.

Consequently, it was decided to schedule the Seasonal School in virtual form for the time being.

The online workshops will be held on the following days:

  • Thursday, 24 June 2021
  • Monday, 28 June 2021
  • Wednesday, 30 June 2021

The workshops will be held in the following time periods:

  • German time: 3pm – 7pm
  • Romanian / Israeli time: 4pm – 8pm
  • Mexican time: 8am – 12pm

There will be another meeting in March 2021 to decide whether it is possible to hold the Seasonal School in physical form.

Where will the seasonal school in Stuttgart take place?

Most of the workshops and seminars will take place in the lecture halls of Stuttgart Media University (see map below) but we also will cruise around the city and discover the startup scene of Stuttgart.

Where will I sleep?

Stuttgart Media University is booking a youth hostel for you (students from abroad, not for HdM students). You will stay in 2-3 bedrooms at the youth hostel Neckarpark which is well connected to the city centre (1 stop by city train S-Bahn) and to the university (5 stops by city train S-Bahn). Your mentors from your university will stay in the same place. Breakfast and lunch package is included.

What does it cost?

The seasonal school workshops & seminars are for free. Also travel costs and accomodation will be covered. The only expenses you will have are food and personal excursions and souvenirs.

Who can I contact?

In case you have questions regarding the seasonal school in Stuttgart or general questions about the project, please contact Violetta.

There are also local „scouts“ from you country which can help you with any other question.

For Mexico it is Diana.

For Romania it is Cristian & Alexandra.

For Israel it is Moti.

Can I take part in several seasonal schools of Mission:Enterprise?

There are different aspects to consider:

1. You will be able to only participate in one seasonal school abroad. So once you went to e.g. Stuttgart from another country you will be not eligible to attend another Mission:Enterprise seasonal school abroad.

2. Depending on your application (see selection criteria) it is possible that you take part in ONE Mission:Enterprise seasonal school abroad AND the Mission:Enterprise seasonal school in your home country.

3. Of course each Mission:Enterprise seasonal school treats the topic „Entrepreneurship“ but each country tackles a different focus, so be sure to have a great experience anyway.

I don’t want to go to Stuttgart – when and how can I apply for the other seasonal schools?

The other seasonal schools take place at a later point of time. So if you want to go to another country, please check the dates. As soon as the call for application for the next seasonal school is open we will keep you posted on Facebook and Instagram and in our newsletter.

Do I need a visa to go to Germany?

Usually the participating countries do not need a visa to stay in Germany for two weeks. In case you have any doubts, you can always check the website of the Federal Foreign Office.

In case your native country is any other than Romania, Israel or Mexico, please check with your local scout (see question above „Who can I contact?“)

In which language will the seasonal school be held?

All seminars, workshops and events throughout the seasonal school will be held in English.

Who is financing the seasonal school and travel costs?

The travel costs, expenses for seminars, workshops and accommodation are covered by the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM for University Students – BWS plus. Further information on the different programs of the Baden-Württemberg foundation can be found below.
