ECCE 2021 preview

12 January 2021

This year, regardless of the lockdown, we will continue supporting all types of UG students on their endeavors to explore whether entrepreneurship is something for them. This year is the 8th edition of the Extra-Curricular Course on Entrepreneurship (ECCE).

And despite the Covid-19 lockdown, or perhaps because of the opportunity to participate remotely, we have received more applications than ever before. In 2020 we received 210 applications. On the 8 January 2021 we had over 280 students that showed their interest in ECCE.

We have now selected 93 best applicants to begin the evening course on 1 February 2021. All the course-related meetings will take place on the BlueJeans platform.

This year's edition of ECCE has not only moved from physical classes to online classes, but also welcomed new speakers. Sophie Van Dijk, high energy, courageous, international executive; Jeroen Sempel, financial management guru; Andy Penaluna, ingenious designer-entrepreneur-educator; Guiseppe Lacerenza, transformative artificial intelligence entrepreneur.
