Global Entrepreneurship Week | 14 – 18 november


The Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a collection of tens of thousands of events, activities, and competitions that inspire millions to explore their potential as an entrepreneur while fostering connections and increasing collaboration. The Global Entrepreneurship Network operates a platform of projects and programs in 170 countries aimed at making it easier for anyone, anywhere to start and scale a business.

With so many young entrepreneurial students, we don’t want to miss this opportunity to connect, inspire, and support all students, startups, entrepreneurs, lecturers and researchers during the Global Entrepreneurship Week from November 14 – 18. Especially because entrepreneurship empowers people to be creative and innovative and enables them to make a difference. The GEW will this year be organized for the first time with all universities in Brabant.

  The Dragons Den | November 18 | 14.00 – 18.00 | Den Bosch
On Friday, November 18, we will close the Global Entrepreneurship Week with the first Brabant ‘Dragons Den’, which we renamed ‘Dragons Chapel’ for the occasion because of the location. Seven startups, one from each knowledge institution (TU/e, Tilburg University, JADS, Avans, Fontys, BUAS and HAS) will be on stage for the dragons in the chapel of JADS in our Brabant capital. The 7 startups, seeking funding, pitch their startup and funding request to 4 heavyweights: Charlotte van Slobbe of the Investeerdersclub, Andy Lurling of Lumo Labs, Student fund Round One and Starterslift/BrightMove Investments fund. 
Which startup will receive such a much desired investment? What questions are investors asking? What needs further work? In addition to the possibility of funding from one or more investors, 7,500,- in voucher funding will be given away this afternoon by Round One and BrightMove/Starterslift. Fun, interesting and educational to attend. Who knows, maybe next time you will be on stage with your startup!
