Educational Programs

Founders Network's Educational Program aims to equip Western students with the necessary skills needed to bring their ideas to market. Students from across all faculties are welcome: from computer science students interested in iOS programming to business students with no prior programming background. Programs are taught by senior students who have experience in the field.

Entrepreneurship Events

The Founders network is designed not only to promote entrepreneurial spirit and advance technological learning, but also to connect driven individuals such as yourself with like minded peers. Our entrepreneurship events provide the opportunity to take a close look at successful startups, meet one-on-one with insightful entrepreneurs, and learn from industry experts.

Technology Consulting

The Microsoft Case Competition was the first ever non-technical business-tech consulting case competition geared towards business students who are interested in pursuing tech-related careers. Designed as a competitive event where business students got to analyze a real life scenario faced by Microsoft, they got a taste of what it is like to work for a world leading tech company’s business unit.
