1.1.1 Introduction

Course subject(s) Module 1 – Introduction


Entrepreneurship for Engineers provides you the tools to start your own company. This course is to help and encourage you to start a successful technology-based venture. These six weeks are full of inspiring stories of several start-up companies which came out of the ecosystem of the four technical universities in the Netherlands (4TU): Wageningen University and Research, Delft University of Technology, University of Twente and Eindhoven University of Technology.

If you have always wanted to become an entrepreneur using new technology, or when you frequently identify problems in present day life which can be solved with technology, or if you are simply interested to see new opportunities to put a new technology to use, this course is for you. This course aims to help you understand the process of entrepreneurship from a technology-oriented background, which is the core of 4TU. It is not necessary to have prior business experience before you start the course.

The course has eight modules and each module focuses on the main topic related to starting a new venture (such as ‘team’, ‘opportunity recognition’, ‘financing’ or ‘customers’). The modules are presented by experts from the four above mentioned universities in the Netherlands in the field of entrepreneurship and technology development.

When you are a science or engineering student or employed in a tech environment, this course helps you to think about the entrepreneurial opportunities of new technologies.
