    IADE School Agency and the cropUP program established a partnership with the aim of supporting our startups in design, marketing, and communication activities. IADE School Agency is a communication studio lab created in IADE – Creative University in 2008 that provides real project scenarios for its students in an agency context. The main goal is to strengthen the link between the university, market and civil society, and the success of it relies upon an adequate communication that arises the interest of young citizens in social causes and instills a solidarity and responsibility sentiment. In this way, students not only apply the theoretical and practical bases previously acquired but also deal with real cases, allowing their progress and growth in a professional and personal sense. Expected activities In each semester, startups that need support in design, marketing, and communication activities will have the opportunity to present their business cases to an audience of IADE students. If some students will express interest in working on your case, you will engage with them during that period, discussing and meeting whenever needed. In the end, students will present the results in a final session and their reports sent it to you for your record. If you want to take advantage of this partnership, please contact the cropUP team. Note: if you are not located in Lisbon there is still a possibility to participate since all the interaction with the students can be made by video conference.
