Entrepreneurial Day

Programme overview

The 2018 Entrepreneurial Day on Thursday 21 June 2018 is full of inspiring pioneers. All to inspire you to become a pioneer yourself, no matter what your background is. This makes sense, because current and future pioneers are very different in terms of age, expertise, occupation, locations, etc. etc.!

Student teams battle during the semi-finals and finals of the UT Entrepreneurial Challenge. You can get to know our innovative student teams, (pre)startups, partners and next unicorns at the Entrepreneurial Market. Be there for an eye-opening keynote by Peter Wennink (CEO and President ASML), Jeangu Macrooy's beautiful music and the awarding of several prizes. To close the day, drinks will be served.

We will start at 10:30 with the semi-finals of the UT Entrepreneurial Challenge at DesignLab. From 13:00 the programme will continue at De Waaier building, where the Innovation Lecture by Peter Wennink, CEO and President of ASML will start at 14:00.
