About EntrepreneurialU, Summer School - at University of Twente

In a global economy, people are increasingly being expected to take responsibility for and ownership of their own lives. Our modern society needs individuals who are able to recognize and seize opportunities. People who innovate, initiate and co-create. People who take action! Developing an entrepreneurial attitude and relevant skills is vital to prepare for life in tomorrow's world. Not only for aspiring entrepreneurs, but for every single one of us!

Join this track, 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. With the help of workshops, coaches and experts, you can either build a coalition around your idea, or join a team that is working on something you are passionate about. 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.
