Should you apply for YEP?

No matter if you’re graduating, studying or running your own business full-time, as long as you’re into entrepreneurship and solving problems, YEP can be the perfect program for you.

Work remotely

You don’t have to live in Berlin or move here to participate in the Young Entrepreneurs‘ Program.
Everything besides the Focus Camps can be done from home. That means you only need to be in Berlin for a weekend every other month.

Young Entrepreneurs‘ Program


To participate in YEP, you have to pay a monthly fee of 150€ for one year.

The contribution of 150€ per month doesn’t fully cover the costs we have in creating this program for you.

CODE supports YEP so we can provide a maximum of value for you as a participant at low costs.

On top of that we’re also reaching out to organizations and individuals who want to become sponsors.

Let’s create something extraordinary


Apply for YEP

Have a question?

You should have graduated from school and be maximum 23 years old when the next cohort starts.

As long as you meet the age requirements and executed projects, we can just ask you to apply. We’re focusing on the right mindset and the drive to execute your plans, not on the perfect idea.

Yes. We’re organizing Focus Camps about every two months in Berlin, and you should participate as often as possible in them. We offer free rides with our partner FlixMobility so that you can travel to Berlin with low costs.

Yes, we will focus on your unique situation by providing mastermind sessions, mentoring and focus camps to solve your current challenges.

YEP as a program is designed for solo persons. If you want to participate as a team, all of you can apply for YEP on your own and maybe cross-reference in a cool way (e.g., attachments) that you’re working together.

Usually we expect entrepreneurs on a certain level that you can bring this amount of money to the table as this is a crucial ability for every entrepreneur. There is one exclusion: If you graduated from the school in the year that you applied, and you can show that neither you or your parents can pay this amount of money, we can try to figure things out. Please send us the standard application and tell us about it when you are in the next step of the application process.

No, it isn’t. YEP is powered by CODE, but it is a separate program that everybody who is interested in entrepreneurship can apply for.
