Study innovation and entrepreneurship in Portugal this summer!


My name is Adam Dada and I'm a student coordinator at the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology (SCET) here at UC Berkeley. I’m writing to ask for your help to share our 2019 summer abroad program with your students.  

Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Europe, Portugal is a dynamic, hands-on program where Berkeley students earn 6 units of Industrial Engineering (IEOR) credits while collaborating with 500 students from all over the world and mentors from top tech companies like Google. The program is open to undergraduate and graduate students of all majors.

At SCET we strive to recruit students from diverse backgrounds with different skill sets because we believe diversity is the key to success in entrepreneurship. The program is designed to give students "real-world" experience independent of whether they plan to start their own company or not. (See recent Berkeley news article about the program!)

I would really appreciate your help by sharing the following information with your students, and if you have any questions, please let me know!

Here is the information to share:
