Together we can make your projects and ideas come to  life.

We are the first Academy of projects and ideas from Europe, initiated, created and led by students for students. We offer free mentoring, support and guidance for young social entrepreneurs in creating and implementing their own projects, including close collaboration with schools, institutions and organisations from Romania, but also from all around the world, in order to emphasise the students involvement in their communities.

Do not take our word for it

Think-up Academy gave me the opportunity to finalise a project through which I developed my parents' business. The mentors have been supporting me throughout the whole process. I am glad that I had the chance of taking part in this project, and I warmly recommend the Academy to anyone!

At the Academy I have met competent and motivated people, who have always shown their constant wish to help the people around them. I can say that I have enjoyed working with their mentors and that their information is very useful. Keep up the good work!

Dragos Dobra

Student, 18 years old

From the moment  contacted the students at ThinkUp, I have been warmly welcomed. My mentor was helping me throughout all the process of choosing a boarding school which met my wishes. I would surely come back to them anytime!
