PIBEP is a innovative scholarship program offered by PUCPR. Students receive money and mentoring to develop their own business ideas. I codesigned the program with Business School professors, taught a design thinking workshop and mentored design-led startups.
The program is intensive and fun. Students must work in multidisciplinary teams and test their ideas as soon as possible through prototyping. The program runs for 3 months, twice a year at PUCPR.
