What You Will Learn

The 6 Pillars of EWOR Founder Success

How EWOR Education Works

The EWOR Program

The Four EWOR Principles

Learning is not static

At universities, you learn first and then do, only to discover that most of what you learned is not important. At EWOR you do first. You solve real-world challenges. You build your product. Only when you're stuck do you have to access our content. Yet, non of our learning content is mandatory! We conceive learning as a map, not a curriculum.

Maximise Feedback & Reflection

After every challenge, i.e. customer discovery or prototyping, you have to reflect with your peers and us. You will be invited to question everything you do, improve every day and ultimately master the art of meta-cognition.

Do things the Hard Way

True learning implies focus and suffering. Don't dare to learn for the short-term. We prepare you for the long journey.

Learning is Fun

No matter how difficult, learning can be fun when conceived as a game. Pioneer through our learning map, level up and skill up your brand.
