Running your own startup can be exhausting and empowering at the same time. Attending events can be a great way to relax and network in a casual environment, while gaining some new skills and inspiration at the same time. Here are some of this week’s interesting startup events, that might interest founders and aspiring startups as well as investors.
Thurs Nov. 24th: Minor Entrepreneurship Networking Event
For about 30 startups it is time to show us what they learned out of the Minor Entrepreneurship, facilitated by Hewlett Packard Enterprise. In several pitches they can prove themselves to the audience and some experts, including Erik Boer, Director at ACE Venture lab and Willem Drost, CES director at StartupDelta. These experts will also share some of their tips and tricks with the startups and the crowd. As it is a networking event, it is not just about the presenting startups and experts, but it is also about you as an attendant! Grab a drink and meet alumni, current students, startups, partners & coaches of the Minor Entrepreneurship as well as professionals & partners from Hewlett Packard.
