We are a program designed and built by students, for students.

Our sister learning company New Designers provided the foundation for NextEd. We are powered by THUAS and we provide expert guidance in creating your own startup. We offer the possibility to intern or graduate with your own startup project. You will be provided a working space for 20 weeks with free coaching, no catch!
