Entering the Start-up Ecosystem

Break barriers and shape the future of your industry.

The triple focus on engineering, IT, and management of the HECTOR School provides graduates with an ideal starting point for the start-up world. Whether you start your own business or enter the fast-paced environment of a growing start up, your broad base of knowledge and ability to understand all sides of a business will be essential.  Far more so than large, established companies, start-ups benefit from employees who can wear multiple hats and pitch in on all aspects of the project. In that environment, the ability to jump in where needed or oversee multiple aspects of the company make you a key player and natural leader.
