During summer most Universities are empty, this would be the perfect location and time to get startup teams together to jump start their projects. European institutions could sponsor these teams to work and live on a campus.

The outcome of such a campus stay could be a Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

Startup-Weekend  ( is a good example on how working and living together can generate an MVP in short time.

How will your concept support web entrepreneurship?

Entrepreneurs would get: - Infrastructure - Food - Housing - A network of like minded entrepreneurs The entrepreneurs could dedicate their whole energy on the project.

What kinds of resources will be needed to get this concept off the ground and scale it?

There are many entrepreneurial programs which are already established at Universities, these programs have to be opened to non students. Europe has a well established infrastructure of universities which are mostly backed by governments. Let startups access this infrastructure.

How could we get started?
