Student Startup

Think. Create. Pitch.

Can you handle the pressure of creating & pitching your own Startup in less then 24 hours? In that case: welcome to Student Startup 2019, an initiative by Van Hall Larenstein, HAN University of Applied Sciences & ArtEZ. You will join a community with entrepreneurial and like-minded students with various backgrounds with whom you will work together to learn a lot of entrepreneurship.

In practice-oriented workshops you will get all tips and trick on how to start a business. Between those workshops, you and your team will develop a whole business concept which you will pitch in front of a professional jury!
