On October 25 and 26 ACE, Nikhef, IXA and CERN-BIC organized the first challenge for master and PhD students to develop their own business concept in a two day session at Start-up Village.
On the first day experts from CERN and experienced entrepreneurs from Amsterdam Start-ups showed the participants how to start their own innovative company. In dedicated international teams the students learned how to define a value proposition and a business model.
On the second day they worked on their market access strategy and finally pitched their ideas in front of a jury.
The jury was impressed by the quality level of the ideas pitched and encouraged all participants to further work out their ideas and turn them into a business.
This event was the first jointly organized Entrepreneurship program focusing on the CERN Business Incubator at the Amsterdam Science Park. The CERN Business Incubator is a collaboration by Nikhef, CERN, UvA, IXA and ACE to actively make CERN technology available for entrepreneurs and companies.
