The kick-off meeting with all projects and companies 4 weeks ago was a great success. Alfons Bruekers (Managing Director TU/e Innovation Space) introduced the TU/e Contest and TU/e Innovation Space in front of a crowded room with students and interested partner companies.
After the introduction, the companies were introduced to the students one by one under the dynamic supervision of Bert Jan Woertman. This was followed by the pitches of the students. In this way the partners and students could get acquainted for the first time. The enthusiasm among those present was high and the co-creation made its first steps.
In total, more than 300 students have created an account on our platform. This has resulted in more than 100 projects registering for the TU/e Contest 2019. Of these, 74 projects made the first round and appeared on the website with their profile. 40 of these projects have made it to the next round and will now prepare for the speed dates and training days to increase their chance of a place in the final.
In recent weeks, our partners have provided the participants with feedback by coaching them online. A total of 252 chats were started. The chat function is still open and can be used up until the speed dates! This high involvement of both parties has led to a good result and solid basis for the speed dates on 8 May.
We want to congratulate you all and wish you the best!
Students who do not see their project among the top 40, do not worry, because you can still participate in all workshops and chat with the companies so that your project can still grow. We hope to see you all again at the next TU/e Contest!
