2016-10-18 - Lunch Lecture - Starting Your Own Business

In this lunch lecture about "Starting Your Own Business", we welcomed two speakers: Sandro Etalle and Harold Weffers.  More than 35 PhDs joined to listen to their talks. 

Sandro Etalle shared with us his own exciting story of starting a business and provided us with valuable information about how to start from an idea to a business,  which pitfalls are common and how to avoid them.

Harold Weffers presented us with which services TU/e provides for entrepeneurs and how the university can help us starting our own company.

We thank both speakers for their valuable and insightful talks.
