Entrepreneurship Spring School was very succesful!

Approximately 30 students joined in to learn all about entrepreneurship including customer validation, marketing, finance and pitching.

In addition, a lot of lecturers from the Utrecht School of Economics and organizations joined in to elaborate on their entrepreneurial activities. For example, Enactus Utrecht did a case and presentation on social
entrepreneurship. Also, the attendees had lunch at StudentsInc and had the chance to meet startup entrepreneurs.

On Friday, the teams had to 13061923_10154077525176866_1082388099700014454_npitch their final business idea to three dragons in the Dragon’s Den. Eventually, a winner was chosen. A pitch on a sustainable water bottle based on bamboo won the competition.

This week the Utrecht University/ Adelaide University Summer School had its first episode. Students from Down Under worked on an entrepreneurial topic and presented their pitch to both their lecturers and a group of angel investors. Could this be the start of a new annual tradition? In any way the course Essentials of Business and Entrepreneurship (Osiris code EC2EBE2) will be held in Australia for the first time this year in November. Students who are interested can get more information from Hein Roelfsema and Peter O. van der Meer (picture during class Entrepreneurial Marketing & Growth Hacking)
