Every year In The Pocket offers 10 graduates the chance to join our Summer Academy. For a few days three different teams try to tackle a specific challenge by creating a (concept of a) digital product.

Summer Academy is always organised in partnership with another company or organisation. In 2017 we joined forces with Refu Interim, the year after with public broadcaster VRT.

The students joining our Summer Academy have a diverse background. The teams consist of developers, designers, marketeers and strategists. Just like a real digital product studio - which makes our Summer Academy the perfect preparation for the real life.

Alumni of the Summer Academy end up in companies such as Adyen, Wild and Teamleader. Or at In The Pocket: 5 alumni joined our company in the last 2 years.
