“The Ampion program truly set the path for me towards my entrepreneurship journey. I gained the initial knowledge of how to run a business and access to a network of entrepreneurs from other countries that helped me develop my start-up, Accounteer.”

"The greatest part about the Ampion Venture Bus is the innovation it triggered - when you bring people together with the same passion, you create something unexpected and that’s exactly what Ampion did – created an enabling environment that stimulated innovation.”

“The Ampion Venture Bus was an unforgettable experience. Working together with people from diverse backgrounds to collaborate and build a product in 7 days was so unique. Most of the people I met on the Venture Bus in 2015 are still very good networks that I can still count on today.”

We believe Entrepreneurs can help solve our biggest problems
