"An environment that fosters a mindset of being curious, being explorative, being eager to discover, gather knowledge, find solutions is crucial for students. To me, that is why the TU/e Innovation Space and the TU/e Contest are of such added value. The way the TU Eindhoven stimulates students to develop their innovative ideas and promising business plans also encourages the indispensable “dream, dare, do” mindset for personal development, technical progress and new solutions for relevant societal problems. I wish you many inspirational dreams and innovative ideas. I also wish you the courage to dare and the strength to do. There’s still a world to be won. We, companies included, need you for finding future solutions for the problems of today."
