Alumni event Zurich

24 mei 2018 18:00 t/m 22:00 - Locatie: ETH Zurich

Alumni in Switzerland are invited to join us in Zurich on Thursday May 24th for a special alumni event focused on start-ups featuring two speakers from our local Swiss network representing two sides of the entrepreneurship eco-system.  The first speaker is TU Delft alumnus Stijn Pieper who is the co-founder and CTO of Advanon, a leading platform for SME financing in Switzerland and Germany that since its launch in 2015 has grown into a 30+ people operation. Our second speaker is UT alumnus and angel investor Michael van Swaaij who in his past has been the CEO of Skype, the founder of eBay Europe and the CSO of eBay.

The Dutch Engineers Alumni Network (DEAN) of TU Delft, TU/e, UTwente, and Wageningen launched its activities in 2014 and has communities in the USA, the Nordics, Canada, Australia and Spain. Switzerland is home to nearly 2000 Dutch ‘TU’ graduates and next month we will host our first joint alumni gathering in the country! The evening will also include an update from your alma mater as well as a concluding borrel where you can reminisce about your student days in the Netherlands and network with fellow alumni!
