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)
