In 2016 the B. Startup School opened its doors in Amsterdam for 300 students as an answer to the growing demand for talent in the startup ecosystem. We noticed that there is a gap between the current education system and the industry. There are a ton of motivated and talented starters who just finished their bachelor’s or master’s degree. Unfortunately the industry still considers them to be too inexperienced. With our program we aim to bridge this gap by providing graduates the necessary skills and experience the industry is asking for.
The program is being run in Amsterdam and consists of an intensive full-time course, followed by a six-month traineeship. We work together with some of the best education institutions from NYC, France, Sweden and The Netherlands to provide our students with the highest level of expertise.
// First cohort: 300 students, 85% placement rate
// Second cohort: 1,200 students, projected placement rate of 90-100%
Our aim is to expand the BSSA program to New York City in 2017. Connecting New York City based future talent with international companies.
