SPARK academy is a three-month education program with a focus on IT business and management skills, which is turning high-quality young profiles into trained professionals ready to tackle new challenges and create innovations in the IT sector. This program is designed for students and young people that aim to improve their professional as well as personal skills. It's their chance to get experience in a cross-functional team and a realistic startup environment, free of charge. For three months, all members of SPARK academy program will attend workshops on topics such as entrepreneurship, business skills, writing and budgeting projects, human resource management, team management, business communication and public relations, strategic and operational management, marketing, sales, finance, and business law. Improve your soft skills by working in a diverse team and extend your knowledge through coaching and workshops by experts. The program started on 6 May and ends on 26 July 2019. During the academy, you’ll have the chance to visit various events, all with one goal – education and networking. These are conferences, workshops, meetups, competitions, hackathons, forums, and the like. They’ll get to work directly with the best companies in BiH. Hackathon is the final event of SPARK academy. That is where academy participants merge with SPARK school participants and in a short period of time trying to solve one of the corporate companies’ problems. They’ll have mentors’ help and a chance to win rich prize fund. After the academy and hackathon, they’ll get six months of free coworking space so they can continue working on your idea. Who knows, they might even start own business!
