Educating Digital Changemakers – Be Part of Something Unique

The “Digital Tech Fellows” is FAU’s program open to outstanding digital talents from all FAU degree programs and faculties! We give you all you need to follow your heart and passion for digitization, entrepreneurship and innovation. Work in interdisciplinary teams, get in touch with international expert coaches and mentors, and develop creative solutions and your own pristine and validated business model. Within one year, you will learn the newest state-of-the-art innovation methods and work in a small team on your entrepreneurial challenge. Choose either your own start-up idea or be part of somebody else´s idea. You’ll work with 24 other handpicked talents from FAU as well as our international expert coaches and mentors – a unique chance to widen your professional network globally.

That’s also why we’ll have a sports track with yoga, sailing and other exciting sports activities to foster teambuilding and your personal skills –  there is no place you can’t learn something for your project!

All these skills and networks we provide will distinguish you significantly from other founders and entrepreneurs in your later work-life. In addition, at the end of that one year, you´ll have developed a first prototype and your own pristine and validated business model empowering you to enter your chosen market. On top of that, some participants will get a highly exclusive grant to visit one of the top universities worldwide to work on the international perspective of their project.
