Entrepreneurship

This minor offers you the opportunity to set up a real start-up. You get professional coaching and gain important skills through practical workshops.

In addition, you gain theoretical knowledge on entrepreneurship. This programme started in 2007 and has already brought to life hundreds of start-ups. Check www.startupandrunning.nl for an overview of current and former start-ups from this minor.

This is a great minor! Setting up my start-up, AcaBoo, is an interesting experience. The team is still fully dedicated and AcaBoo is making huge progress. The new skills and knowledge I gained during the minor are extremely useful in pursuing my entrepreneurial career. Mikel Palokaj, CEO at AcaBoo - minor 2017-2018
