Societal issues are increasing on a global scale as the world becomes more complex. At the same time, issues such as technology, energy, climate and food have a huge impact on our lives.
The TU/e Contest is an initiative of TU/e innovation Space and offers engineering students a platform to develop their entrepreneurial competences. Whether you are part of a student team, part of a startup or you just have an idea worth exploring, you are more than welcome! You get support to transform innovative ideas related to societal issues into viable business ideas, in co-creation with a broad range of experts in the field.
Throughout the competition, you develop entrepreneurial competences during workshops and brainstorm sessions with like-minded students. On top of that, you will be able to meet coaches from both educational and business environments in several online and offline networking events. In short, the TU/e Contest is the perfect opportunity to start your entrepreneurial journey and expand your network!
You have an innovative idea, a solution for a contemporary or future problem, or perhaps a vision that you want to make more concrete? Work on your value proposition and make that next step to a business model canvas and compete for the Ideation Award!
Are you already beyond the ideation phase and are you working on a prototype, scale model or a business model? Are you ready to take the next step to a Minimal Viable Product and a more developed business idea? Then you can compete for the Prototyping Award.
The Student Teams are more than fantastic projects, as they also lead to successful startups! Pitch now with your Student Team, connect with our partners and build new collaborations, recruit new team members and grab this chance to win the Student Teams Award.
TU/e Contest is a nice opportunity for developing yourself as an engineer of the future, by improving your entrepreneurial competences. Together with the partners in the network, TU/e innovation Space will help you on your way from dream to demo to world market.
