    Announcing the top 20!


    The enthusiasm seems higher than ever before. Students have blown us away by presenting their – unprepared – pitch during the kick-off meeting, they’ve been chatting and speed dating with our partners as if it was an everyday job, and they’ve created their own business plans from scratch – well with a little help of our business panel. So we must say that we are very impressed with each and everyone of you!


    Via the many chats that were started in the first two months of the Contest students have grabbed the chance to introduce themselves and their project to our partners. But it was only until the speed dates where they actually got to meet for the first time. Rounding off to about 170 speed dates, we feel this was a great success!
    If you weren’t at the speed dates but do want to know what it was like, check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hImY-Ky6obk&t= 


    And now it’s time to announce who will get the chance to impress the partners, the grand jury, and the rest of the audience. It’s time to announce who made it to the top 20.
    These projects and students will be battling for amazing opportunities and prizes during the final event on the 22nd of May. Curious? Reserve your seat in the Blauwe Zaal and don’t miss this spectacular battle https://tuecontest.nl/finale


    Let us just say that selecting 20 projects was not an easy task and if you don’t see the name of your project below, this still means that you are doing a great job and we would like to invite you to join us again next year!
