Be inspired. Dare to innovate.


Happening yearly, Maastricht Entrepreneurship Week is the largest event of its kind in the Netherlands, organized entirely by students, for students. We bring together over 500 students and entrepreneurs in a dynamic program which is designed to inspire and empower the participants to make a positive change in the world, as entrepreneurs.


Each year, the organizing team chooses a theme for the event and creates an exciting program. In 2016, we invited extraordinary entrepreneurs who demonstrated what it took to accomplish seemingly impossible tasks; people who started small and grew their firms into ‘booming businesses’.


For the 8th edition in 2017, we aim to bring together students to mobilize and engage in the dynamic field of entrepreneurship: get inspired by stories from professionals, participate in case competitions and workshops, and ultimately take the opportunity to make their move towards creating their own ventures.


Steve Jobs said it best – We are here to make a dent in the Universe. Join our program to get inspired and understand what it takes to become an entrepreneur!
