Start-up Day

Powered by Rabobank Rotterdam

During the Start-up Day the students will be immersed in the entrepreneurial aspects of the participating companies. These companies will elaborate on their own experiences as a start-up. They will share their achievements and the obstacles they have overcome in order to give you insights of all aspects of starting your own company. Also companies which invest in start-ups will give an insight in their investment considerations.

First our host Kees de Jong from NLGroeit will open the Start-up Day and share his entrepreneurial experience with us, followed up by a short pitch per start-up. There are two rounds of presentations and two parallel workshops. After each round of presentations entrepreneurial topics will be discussed in an intimate setting. At the end of the day there will be a possibility to have a drink and network with your fellow students and the participating start-ups.

This day also gives you the unique opportunity to pitch your own business idea in front of a panel of entrepreneurs. They will give you advice, share tips and tricks and you might even find an investor!


The workshops are given by:
   Venture IQ: ‘Venture Capital’
   Kleinhandel: ‘How to drive innovation through design thinking?’
