ECCE - online in full swing

16 February 2021

This year unlike any time before, the Centre of Entrepreneurship runs the extra-curricular course online. The course recruited over 90 students who demonstrated high motivation for new value creation, willingness to share their knowledge and learn. The students have learnt about business ideation and different forms of entrepreneurship so far, and already met a number of bright guest speakers - entrepreneurs Guiseppe Lacarenza (Slimmer AI), Semme Molenaar (CarbExplore Research), Sophie Van Dijk (Gum Care), and Arjen Boekhold (Tony's Chocolonely, Game Changer Unltd).

We also acknowledge the interest of everyone who wanted to join after the deadline but did not get in - we welcome you to try again next year. In the meantime, we keep sharing with you how it goes with the course including a video collage of the most interesting and moments that is coming later this spring.

Enjoy the spring term!
