Entrepreneurial Day 2017

The University of Twente invites you for its Entrepreneurial Day on Tuesday 13 June. The theme of this day is ‘Digitize: Disrupt or Be Disrupted’. You are all invited to attend this exciting afternoon.

The University of Twente is known for its entrepreneurial spirit. We are Europe’s proud frontrunner in knowledge transfer with over 900 spin-off and start-up companies. Together with students, entrepreneurs, regional and national governments, our scientists seek technological solutions for today’s and tomorrow’s global challenges.

Entrepreneurial Day will, amongst others, feature the finals of the 2017 UT Entrepreneurial Challenge. In these finals, students compete for the most innovative idea, proto-type or business plan. Partners in this challenge are leading companies in and outside the Twente region, such as ASML, Demcon, Nuon, Thales, and Ernst & Young.
