AVP has an ongoing partnership with UC Berkeley, which makes it possible to take part in the bootcamp at no cost for the students. Full-time Aalto students, who have taken (or are planning to take) AVP courses and already have an idea they'd like to develop at the bootcap are welcomed to apply.

  • Work on idea generation and how to turn ideas into new ventures
  • Use case studies to facilitate and hone ideas, attend special modules on ideation, sales, pitch, and funding
  • Collaborate with UC Berkeley experts and advance your idea to the next level
