Startup i Praksis is an opportunity for the student who, through his/her studies, has developed an exciting business idea and is interested in working full time on this idea. The project enables the student to do a project-oriented course (internship) in his/her own startup. As the project also focuses on creating internships in one of AAU's many own startups it is also an opportunity for the student who is just curious about what it is like to be an entrepreneur and would like to be part of the dynamics that characterize the entrepreneurial environment.
Studies show that modern companies are demanding employees with entrepreneurial skills. Being an entrepreneur is more than starting and running a business. It's about being creative, proactive, opportunity oriented and innovative. These are characteristics that the student, regardless of whether he/she work on his/her own business idea or become a team member in someone else's startup, will have the opportunity to develop by participating in Startup i Praksis.
