Together with the Municipality of Delft, TU Delft stimulates technical entrepreneurship via the YES!Delft centre for entrepreneurship. This is aimed specially at graduates and scientists of TU Delft, and inventors in the region who want to start a company. YES!Delft provides training courses, office space and access to research facilities and networks. It offers valuable resources for a successful start. The faculty of Industrial Design Engineering has already produced a number of high-tech start-ups, including Senz, Epyon Power, Evening Breeze and NightBalance.

Fresh IDE graduates are in an excellent position to launch themselves as entrepreneurs. The IDE valorisation team provides them with advice and can help them protect their intellectual property rights where necessary.
