The International Council for Small Business (ICSB) is delighted to invite you to our 9th annual ICSB Academy in Berlin, Germany. This intensive boot camp gathers students from around the world together for an experience designed to challenge, stimulate, and build entrepreneurial skills. Based on the philosophy that organizations, including businesses, exist to meet the needs of our communities and society, and grounded in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the Academy will emphasize the bottom line: Profit, People, and Planet.
Academy participants form teams, are assigned a mentor, then prepare a business pitch to be evaluated by an independent judging panel on Friday, July 5th. The winning team receives a prestigious ICSB Cup and joins the ICSB Gala for a celebration.
Throughout the week, teams attend workshops, visit incredible partners, and work exclusively with a team mentor. This is a high-energy, competitive environment with great learning opportunities, enabling you to create friendships for a lifetime!
