Connected with TU/e via coaching

From the perspective of 'Learn, earn, return', alumni can give back to their alma mater in various ways f.e. via coaching. For several years now, alumni have contributed to the TU/e Contest, a competition that give students the opportunity to realize their innovative ideas and take them to a higher level. This year alumni Niels Sopnel and Lex Daan f.e. shared their expertise with the student teams during the speed dating sessions.

Lex Daan: "Innovation is like an addiction; you always crave for more! It is therefore very inspiring that TU/e provides such a powerful platform such as the TU/e Contest and TU/e Innovation Space to keep us all addicted to innovation."

 Niels Sopnel: “Just a quick note to say ‘thank you so much’ for inviting me to support/coach the teams participating in the TU/e Contest this year: it’s been a truly wonderful experience! Not only because of the re-connect with the TU/e after 34 years working abroad, but also (and most importantly) because of the trust and warm welcome provided by the 6 teams who accepted my offer to support them.”
