To bring entrepreneurship education in Amsterdam to a higher level, a number of initiatives have been developed and employed.
Teachers active in entrepreneurship education have access to so-called Entrepreneurship Cases – a variety of teaching cases featuring successful new ventures from the Amsterdam region, covering all sorts of topics. In the Tony Chocolonely case, the focus lies on social entrepreneurship. The fintech case SRXP covers the development and growth of a young entrepreneur. The Next Web case covers the employees’ point of view in a growing business. To see all the entrepreneurship cases and how to use them in class, visit the website.
In the start-up phase of a company, it can be particularly valuable to be able to spar with an experienced entrepreneur. Therefore, the Start Up and Running platform was launched. On the platform, student entrepreneurs can find experienced mentors – active entrepreneurs, who can advise them in the various stages of the start-up. Having a mentor truly makes a difference when starting a company. A mentor can also be of great value in a more mature phase of a company.

Blended learning is the combination of online (lecture material) and offline (personal contact) educational activities within a course or curriculum. This is particularly suitable for entrepreneurship education, in which experiential learning is central and the need for knowledge is highly context dependent.

To keep HvA-alumni with their own business up to speed with the latest insights and knowledge the Post-Experience Program, with masterclasses and courses, was developed. For more information and upcoming masterclasses please send an email to email@example.com.
