From Friday February 2 to Monday February 5 newly enrolled students of the EIT Digital Master School in the Netherlands will encounter in a Winter School in Eindhoven. That weekend, they are challenged to come up with a real-life entrepreneurial business case. Only one team can win.
The Winter School takes place from Friday February 2 to Monday February 5 2018 at the EIT Co-location Centre in at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven. The Winter School is mandatory for the EIT Digital Master School students who are located at the Dutch partner universities Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology or the University of Twente.
In the Winter School more than forty international students will be coached by Ákos Wetters and Peter Langela. Also, the students will profit from different workshops about innovation and entrepreneurship to inspire and educate students for their challenging business case. They learn how to form teams, how to overcome differences, how to brainstorm about solutions, how to make a business case and how to pitch.
For the business case, the various student teams will work on real case scenarios from Dutch EIT Digital's partners and startups. They first must form project teams. An extra exciting component is that students all have different backgrounds in education, nationality and culture. So, they must find very quickly what the common grounds and the mutual goals are to win this business case challenge as one team of equals. On Monday February 5, they will have to pitch their business case to a professional jury. Only one team can win.
