The Transatlantic Entrepreneurship Academy 2018 cohort, or TEA2 picked up where the inaugural TEA left off. With an energy and enthusiasm to immerse in culture, people, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Week 2 > Montclair, NJ
And hugs at the reunion, 6 weeks later at Montclair State University, in Montclair, NJ.
The depth of learning and bonding did not let up during round two.
Karaoke kicked off the reunion (videos of the event are valuable but will not be posted on this website,) 3D Printing in the MIX Lab, presentations at the ADP Innovation Lab, Bell Labs and Mad Labs, the 9-11 memorial and Yerma.
Students took their innovations from Graz and tested them in Montclair putting them through their entrepreneurial paces. Validating their business models on the streets of New York City between Chelsea Markets and the Oculus, each team was sure to find a customer in their target market to interview and validate their ideas.
The 2 weeks ended with epic presentations and the annual Red Hawk ceremony.
