Novel-T Networking Day

10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Designlab, Universiteit Twente, Enschede


Do you want to discover if entrepreneurship is something for you or do you want to start your own business and find out what Novel-T can do for you? Or do you have less with entrepreneurship but do you want to get in contact with the companies in the region and learn more about living and working in Twente as an international student? Join us at the Novel-T Networking Day! Follow various workshops about pitching and the Business Model Canvas and get inspired by the experiences of (young) entrepreneurs that started their business during their studies.

The Novel-T Networking Day starts with a plenary opening session with the mayor of Enschede, Onno van Veldhuizen, in the DesignLab at the University of Twente. Next up, there are two workshop rounds with various workshops that you can visit for free:

Workshop round 1 (parallel):

  • Workshop: Business Model Canvas by Peter Langela (Novel-T)
  • Inspiration: Starting your own company during your study years – experiences, tips en tricks of startup CodeSandbox by Ives van Hoorne and Bas Buursma
  • Workshop: Living in Twente for international students: do’s & don’ts by Expat Center East Netherlands

Workshop round 2 (parallel):

  • Workshop: Pitch training by Mike Verkouter (Novel-T)
  • Inspiration: Starting your own company during your study years – experiences, tips en tricks by Nico Nijenhuis
  • Workshop: Living in Twente voor international students: do’s & don’ts by Expat Center East Netherlands

After the workshops, a lunch is arranged at the Flow of Innovation at the Kennispark area where you can get in contact with companies of Kennispark and the region. Put yourself in the spotlight and find your next assignment. Or maybe you’ll start your own company very soon. See you on August 28!
