DEAN online events ‘meet the start-ups tour’
Dutch technical universities are recognized around the world for both excellent education as well as cutting edge research, so it is not surprising to find our graduates making an impact also as founders of up and coming start-ups. During a new series of online Dutch Engineers Alumni Network (DEAN) events aka ‘meet the start-ups tour’ we will showcase young alumni entrepreneurs behind exciting new ventures who will share their inspiration, challenges and ambitions for the future!
30 September 2021 20:00 till 22:00
Meet the start-ups tour: NordicsSeries on young alumni entrepreneurs behind exciting new ventures. The interactive evening programme includes brief updates from the universities followed by a short talk by TU Delft and ETH alumnus Chester Houwink about his journey from Tesla and Rocket Internet to co-founding Zurich based 9T Labs – a company pioneering industrial 3D printing of carbon fiber composites that last year raised $4.3 million in seed financing.
