"Connecting people with a common goal"

My greatest opportunity this year
To work with like-minded determined students and work together towards execution of entrepreneurial ideas, while having fun in the process!

Greatest obstacle I tackled
Switching from physical meetings and events to video conferences, and working in uncertainty regarding present & future Covid-19 restrictions with the board

Biggest learning lesson of the year
Meet physically if you can & be transparent and communicative!

Why you wouldn’t do a regular faculty board
When joining ECE Students events you can see people’s interest for what you do and their motivation and enthusiasm to take the entrepreneurial path. Being part of this board, you will not only support these students on their entrepreneurial and academic journey, but also educate yourself about a truly interesting career choice, being entrepreneurship.
