Graduate degree – Accelerator
As part of the graduate program, students are required to participate in completing the degree in a lab – an accelerator that aims to identify a problem or challenge and find a creative solution with tools learned in the degree and offer a business plan with technological and business feasibility. Each year each cycle manages to issue at least one group that manages to raise money or sell the product / service.
This year a group of students managed during the degree to establish a company called “Lichi”. The company has developed a platform that reduces the process and cost of mediation between farmers and marketing networks. Accelerator teams are formed during the study tour abroad in the summer semester and are guided by mentors with various specializations such as: finance, business plan, strategy, UX-UI, design and more. This year there were six mentors, including three graduates of the program in the past and some volunteering.
