not your regular summer job



Are your plans for the summer still open? Would you like to earn your bread by doing something different than studying or working a ”traditional” summer job? If the answer is yes, we at Aaltoes might have a solution for you! Ignite is our latest program, where students get to try pushing an idea of theirs forward. During the ten-week online summer program the participants develop their idea step by step. When it comes to further refining the idea, the ball is in your court - you have a free hand concerning the development of the idea you’ve created. Aaltoes will support the participants by arranging webinars, providing different tools and offering financial aid for the teams. The program serves as an alternative summer job opportunity, where you have a chance to employ yourself, and through that to improve your skills in for example self-directioning, strategic understanding of an early-stage business and managing the bigger picture as a whole. Above all, you get to be your own boss and to focus your time and energy into creating and polishing an idea that truly inspires you.

Ignite was created to respond to the prevailing situation by offering students an alternative way to spend their summer. The program is a good fit for students and recent graduates who want to test the functionality and potential of their idea during this summer. So, if you wish to take the matters in your own hands and bring an idea of yours to life this summer, don’t hesitate to apply! Note that you don’t need to have a crystal clear, ready-made idea when applying for the program - interest in entrepreneurship and courage to candidly jump into trying something new make you a perfectly qualified applicant!
