We are only two weeks away from launching our 1st program outside of Amsterdam, and the pressure is on! As our team is bending over backwards to ensure our 3rd startup weekend is even grander than the last two, we invite the public to join us on Sunday for the final pitches. Over the weekend the participants will intensively work on their business ideas, along with the best student consultants and experiences business coaches, and it will all come down to the final pitch, where the public will vote to choose 3 winning entrepreneurs.

The winners will get:

  • a spot in our upcoming incubator program
  • a monetary award of 500€ to invest in their projects
  • and a spot in the Young Advisory Group’s 2 day follow-up program, where participants can win an additional prize of 500€, 1000€ or 2000€

If you want to witness the power of entrepreneurship live, join us!
