Good for the Community, Good for You

A bootcamp dedicated to inspiring and educating young people, encouraging entrepreneurial spirit by promoting innovation and sustainability in the local community.

About the Summer School

The Climate Vertical, in collaboration with the Entrepreneurial Society for Students of “Vasile Alecsandri” University in Bacău, is organizing a three-day summer school for students. This initiative serves as an incubator for entrepreneurial ideas, supporting young individuals in developing and validating innovative concepts, providing them with a conducive environment for learning and collaboration. The program is designed to refine initial ideas and transform them into actionable business plans, promoting sustainability projects and positive impact within the community.

Through this project, a framework is established to work together on validating an idea, discover market potential, as well as to develop innovative solutions to various local challenges. Creative ideation within the Bacău community is facilitated by working alongside mentors and specialized partners from diverse fields, as well as successful local entrepreneurs. Among the key partners are Rubik Hub, Volta X Solar Systems, and Autonom. The primary objective is to promote innovation, encourage entrepreneurial spirit, optimize processes, and support the development of viable projects that benefit the community.

The three days will culminate in a Demo Day held at the Autonom headquarters in Piatra Neamț, during which students will pitch their ideas to an experienced jury.
