At OSTX, We work on 2 main programs
-The Student program that is a 10-week entrepreneurship program co-designed with Columbia university, especially tailored for student needs.
It brings together cross-disciplinary students from institutions within the same region (HUB) to develop innovative start-ups solving global challenges.
- The Faculty Program is a year-long program that empowers faculty by developing their skills and enabling their openness to the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Because we believe that together we can be change makers! OSTX aims to support Tunisian youth eager to open up to the world and thrive. It brings together students from the same University but different disciplines to boost their innovation and team-work skills to solve global problems.
Throughout the OSTX journey, the student will better define and enhance their ideas in order to be ready to make them get to the next level.
Any Student who is : Fluent in English, Highly motivated, able to collaborate with others and ready for the challenge, can apply either as individuals with a defined idea or without any as well as teams composed from 2 to 5 members.
The Taskforces are the pillars of the program within each one of the involved universities. They will use their acquired knowledge and network to help the program thrive in their Universities.
Each taskforce is generally composed of 5 faculty (professors, teaching assistants…) responsible for the outreach, selection and particularly for organizing and leading a student bootcamp as well as the final competition event.
If you are a faculty and you are looking to get involved in the startups and entrepreneurship ecosystem. You want to work with high potential individuals from multiple disciplines and fields of study. Being a member of the taskforce is what you need.
