Inspirational Events 

You will find out that entrepreneurship does not consist of one preplanned path during our ‘Inspirational Events’. Students, researchers, alumni and other interesting entrepreneurs share their experiences and give tips.


Tired of all that theoretical knowledge and want to roll up your sleeves (literally or figuratively)? Then join one of our workshops and brush up on your entrepreneurial skills.

Innovatie bootcamps

Immerse yourself intensively in the world of innovation and entrepreneurship during one of our innovation bootcamps. In an inspiring setting, you will work in a team on a social challenge.

Pitch events

Valorising your idea: sounds easier than it is. Fortunately, you can also pitch your idea to young fellow entrepreneurs and experts in order to receive valuable feedback. And who knows, you might even score a few extra customers.
