Overview

Join the EntreprenurialU course at University of Twente (UT), if you want to find out whether a career as an entrepreneur is for you. Or if you want to discover whether your business idea is viable. Or if you want to learn to think and act like an entrepreneur.

If you are in search of that extra spark for your business idea, you can seek inspiration by joining one of the other summer school tracks for the first two days. At the end of the week, each team will pitch a working business concept to a panel of experts. Engage with fun-to-be-with people from a variety of backgrounds and with a wide range of interests.

  • evaluate a business opportunity
  • co-create a working business concept
