EMPOWERING STUDENT-ENTREPRENEURS TO SUCCESSFULLY COMBINE ACADEMICS AND RUNNING A BUSINESS

ECE meetup topondernemersregeling 2 juli 15Entrepreneurship among students is on the rise and more and more ambitious student entrepreneurs are discovering that successfully combining studies and running a business can prove challenging. Student entrepreneurs either spend less time on their startup or study resultingin dropouts or bankruptcy. While Steve Jobs (Apple), Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), and Dutch Pieter Zwart (Coolblue) have been highly successful despite dropping out of college, this will not be the reality for many student entrepreneurs. This begs the question: how can we help ambitious student-entrepreneurs to successfully combine academics and runninga business?

On July 2nd, on behalf of the Dutch Centres for Entrepreneurship (Dutch CE) and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, as well as The Dutch Academy for Research in Entrepreneurship (DARE) and Startup Delta, the ECE hosted a meetup with more than 30 educators, specialists, and leaders in the field of entrepreneurship education to talk about specialty support programmes for student entrepreneurs – the so called ‘topondernemersregeling – and best practices in the creation of an ecosystem which promotes entrepreneurial talent.

While all of the programmes experienced their own challenges in creation and implementation, the successes seen in the three cases presented at the meetup only further strengthen the need for support for students in the completion of their studies and growth of their startup.
