TU/e Startup night

TU/e StartUp Night on April 3, 2023: To be repeated

We're looking back at a great night with alumni from Tilburg University and Eindhoven University of Technology. Together we hosted the first 'Startup Night'. Alumni can make a great contribution with their knowledge, experience and network. Precisely for these reasons, on Monday, April 3 both universities brought together entrepreneurial alumni networks.

The evening was filled with knowledge sharing, discussion and the opportunity to network. With some inspiring stories about PhotonDelta, IM Efficiency and EFFECT Photonics But there was also room for panel discussion and news. Read more

To relive the evening again, take a look at the photos or aftermovie.

Enrich your knowledge and strengthen your network

Why we are organizing this event:  

We want to give our alumni the opportunity to strengthen their network.  So that they always know where to find the right people and companies with the right knowledge. Partners that can help them make their project, dream or company a reality. Thanks to the power of cooperation.  

From knowledge institute to innovator 

The role of universities has changed tremendously in recent decades. We evolved from knowledge institutions to drivers of innovation and partners in research for companies. Nowadays, we increasingly bridge the gap between fundamental research and the development of special products.  

Collaboration is the key to success. 

One of the core values of the TU/e is collaboration. To begin with, between our own faculties and institutes. And thanks to initiatives such as Brainport, we have grown into an incubator for innovations that find their way into practice ever faster. 

The Startup Night is a collaboration of Eindhoven University of Technology, Tilburg University, The Gate, IQONIC and Round One Student Investment Fund Brabant. Please note that this event will be held in English.
