The CommUniTy project is aimed at connecting students with start-ups and vice versa. The University of Twente wants to become the most entrepreneurial University in Europe, but how to achieve this? The goal is to create large and long-lasting start-ups that will grow into big companies one day, but what are companies without their employees who could bring in new knowledge and shine a light on new opportunities?
At the University of Twente, there are a lot of entrepreneurial opportunities, but these opportunities are not always as clear to both students and start-ups. Our goal is to improve the visibility of the entrepreneurial possibilities at the University of Twente, and through that connect students with start-ups and vice versa.
Our first step is to map out the different possibilities at the UT. We want to create awareness of all entrepreneurial organizations so that students, but also start-ups know who to contact. Together with a small description of the organizations, this lowers the threshold for contact. In the future, we would like to develop a community in which connections can be formed - if you are interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
