About Ignite

Ignite is an online summer program where students get an opportunity to start pushing an idea of theirs forward and try creating an actual business out of it. The program was originally created last spring as a response to the Coronavirus outbreak, but it is making a comeback next summer as well!

During the ten-week 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 supports the participants by arranging webinars, providing different tools and offering financial aid for the teams. The program offers you 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 working on an idea that truly inspires you!
