Are you or do you want to become an entrepreneur?
How big do you dream? Are you someone that would like to start their own company? Do you have a great idea that you would like to turn into reality, but you just don’t quite know how? Or maybe you have no idea what you would like to do later on and you’re just a bit curious. Then it is a perfect moment to take a look at one of the entrepreneurship evenings. During the entrepreneurship evenings, inspiring, highly achieving individuals will share their success stories and advice.

Are you blindly pursuing a carreer in a large multinational? Open up your eyes and discover the possibilities of entrepeneurship as well. During the Entrepeneurship Kick-Off event, the very interactive workshop of DBK greatly helped to discover how to start your own online business.- Mart Huijsmans
The Entrepreneurship Kick-off event was very inspiring with interesting speaking. Due to the diversity of the speakers, I learned more about entrepreneurship and on how I can apply the knowledge during my student period. Arend Glas had a fascinating story about how you can turn an entrepreneur into an athlete that participates in the Olympics. I’m looking forward to the new events!- Koen de Leeuw
The applications are closed for the first evening
