STARTUP/eindhoven aims to stimulate and support students who want to be entrepreneurial. We provide a combination of coaching, network, facilities, events and more for our student entrepreneurs. Check out what we have to offer, don’t hesitate and Get Started!

Annually many TU/e students graduate and enter the labour market. Mostly they become a researcher or they get a job at a company. But more and more they found their own company. To be innovative, society needs more entrepreneurs and also employees with an entrepreneurial attitude. This requires a different skill- and mindset. Therefore, TU/e Innovation Lab co-established the student incubator STARTUP/eindhoven. Because at TU/e the huge potential of entrepreneurial students is being recognized. At TU/e, student entrepreneurship receives all the support possible, enthusiastically coordinated by the incubator. STARTUP/eindhoven aims to stimulate and support students who want to be entrepreneurial.

European Venture Programme

The EVP is a strategic partnership between four EuroTech universities: École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Technische Universität München (TUM), Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

Per year it offers 20 participants (5 of each university) exclusive access to the entrepreneurship expertise and networking resources available at the four EuroTech Universities. This intensive 12-day program takes entrepreneurs on a journey to all four different ecosystems to enable the startups to grow their business beyond borders, with a European orientation from the very beginning. The programme runs 1 week at the beginning of summer and 1 week at the end of summer.


Health Tech Yard

Health Tech Yard is a living lab in the Eindhoven region where high-tech, healthcare, academic knowledge and development come together with regional SMEs. The different parties are invited to devise, test and develop a good idea in co-creation and turn it into a concrete innovation. Do you have a good idea to improve the care sector? Do you ever think about how technology can help solve the problems in the care sector? For example, innovations that enable people to live longer independent lives at home, caring for sick children in their own homes or making a diagnosis at home. We could go on forever with all the possibilities. But if you happen to have an idea that could be of use to the care sector – in the broadest sense but with the use of technology – then you are most welcome in the Health Tech Yard.
