Around 130 young people gathered together at the HvA’s Amstelcampus (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences) Wednesday evening, where speakers with different backgrounds talked about how Generation Y, the (student) startup founders of today and tomorrow, can make a difference in the world.
Student Talks defines Generation Y
An enthusiastic Daniel Breitwieser, the lecturer of the Co-Creative Entrepreneurship Project at HvA and Fypster’s co-founder, presented the evening. How can generation Y impact the world? That was the central question of the evening. He explained: “Those who are born between the early 80’s and the mid 90’s, are considered generation Y. This generation grew up in a time of enormous technological developments, which has made us more connected than ever before. Globalization gives us many possibilities to make a difference to the world, but at the same time, we are confronted with new challenges, such as climate change, and the current political changes.”
