What can you expect from the CfE?
If you're wondering how to register with the Chamber of Commerce or what you need to arrange with the tax office, or if you want to find an investor or come up with a kick-ass company name, our fun and entrepreneurial community can not only help you but also answer your questions and inspire you with workshops and guest speakers. And, as we already mentioned, we hold our infamous Friday afternoon drinks, where the best plans are laid and contacts made. Whether you're starting your own hospitality business, are running an artist management agency or are thinking about freelancing in health care, with us, you'll go further.
In the community you will work with like-minded people in a 10-week programme on your personal entrepreneurial ambitions. Perhaps you want to discover what entrepreneurship is or you're already a step ahead and want to set up your own company. For this and more, the CfE has several journeys that you can participate alongside your studies.
The CfE has three journeys you can choose from:
- Orientation Journey - In this journey you will discover what entrepreneurship entails and whether it is something for you. You will engage in forming a potential business idea.
- Pre-startup Journey - Do you already have a cool entrepreneurship idea, but don't have a business standing yet? Then this journey might be for you! You get to work on discovering who your target audience is and whether this audience is going to buy your product or service.
- Startup Journey - In the startup journey, you will work on professionalising your business. So you are already turning over sales and have customers. In this journey, we will talk about financing opportunities and sales strategies, among other things.
The journeys are not lectures, but active workshops and sessions in which entrepreneurs and experts speak and motivate you to take steps. Of course, a journey is excellent to follow alongside your regular studies.
