We educate, inspire and incubate tomorrows leading entrepreneurs.

The Maastricht Centre for Entrepreneurship (MC4E) serves students of the whole university by providing opportunities to learn, by providing start-up support, and by helping young ventures to grow. Our Centre is an autonomous “academic venture” within Maastricht University. For our activities, we collaborate with faculties throughout the university who bring their scholarly insights to our classes and workshops.

Launchbase is the centre's pre-incubation program. It provides the ground on which an idea can sprout into a busienss. In two modules, we teach you the essencials of ideation & design, prepare you with the necessary knowledge and accompany you in your early stages.

We are a strong believer in the notion that "ideas grow when shared, discussed and are taken apart".  Throughout the academic year, we host a range of events for students and invite established startups to share their story. Come to hear about their passions, where they come from and what they might still want to achieve.

The MC4E hosts a wide range of entrepreneurial courses at faculties throughout the university, including a Minor for the BSc. of International Business, as well as a Masters program. The courses deploy a problem-based learning methodology and are set up in small tutorial groups up to 15 students.
