Turn your idea into a real-life startup project and supercharge your learning journey! 

EPFL's Changemakers is a 12-week learning program for students to boost their innovation & entrepreneurial skills while working on their own startup project. Our 7th edition will take place from October to December 2023. 

"What's truly inspiring about this program is that you're surrounded by passionate individuals, each harbouring their unique flame of creativity, all working on diverse projects. This collaborative environment not only boosts your confidence but also equips you with the skills to articulate your ideas clearly and effectively." - Polina Holub, Environmental Engineering student and Changemakers spring '23 participant. 

As part of the Changemakers program, you will join weekly workshops that will expose you to new ways of thinking for creative problem-solving, while learning practical tools to create innovation. You will challenge yourself, access expertise and insightful resources, and learn from your peers.  
During Changemakers, you will: 
  • Connect with like-minded students and belong to a community that supports and motivates you. 
  • Learn entrepreneurial and leadership skills that will be valuable throughout your career 
  • Build your early-stage idea into a concrete startup project 
  • Meet entrepreneurs and get supported by experienced coaches  
Interested to join? 
The program is open to all EPFL Bachelor, Master and PhD students. We welcome exciting ideas from any area and encourage those who aspire to have a significant positive impact on society and/or the environment. 
To apply, all you need is an entrepreneurial idea that you wish to develop. Your success will depend on your own motivation and commitment to the weekly workshops.
