STUDENTS@STARTUPS


The Experience branch is the perfect place for students to really put academic knowledge into practice by getting to work themselves. For example, AFC offers the opportunity to participate in a Student Consulting project or you can get a taste of entrepreneurship through an internship together with startup during the summer.

WHY STUDENTS@STARTUPS?

Through our Students@Startups program AFC allows you to discover and expand your entrepreneurial skillset by working in an existing startup and help take it to the next level. This opportunity gives you an exclusive picture of the ins and outs of a new company.

Turn ideas into reality and pure motivation into a viable and sustainable business with the help of entrepreneurs and get a taste of entrepreneurship through an internship at a startup during the summer.
