join the ut challenge!

pitch your idea and get the chance to expand your network and win awards worth up to €5.000 each!

Every year, since the first edition in 2017, the UT Entrepreneurial Challenge has offered students the opportunity to further develop their own, ingenious ideas, prototypes, start-ups and research projects into the next step. Grab your chance and make the most of our fund and educational events as well as the help from our innovative and knowledgeable partners and the UT.

The UT Challenge is an initiative of the University of Twente, Student Union, Novel-T, Designlab and ETM and has grown into a platform that every student can benefit from. In previous editions, over 1400 students have developed ideas and prototypes, drawn up business plans and exchanged valuable knowledge with the (local) business community, with regard to important societal themes.

Join the Ideation category with any idea, project or solution for a societal problem that is still in the first stage or basic description. Already have a prototype, scale model, mvp, business model canvas or research? Prototyping is your category! Already in business or at least a full business plan? Join the Start-up category. Whatever the development stage of your project is, will help you reach the next step!

The 8th edition of the UT Entrepreneurial Challenge will start on 8 March 2024. Register now, pitch your idea, project or Start-up and join the network. Our stage is yours!
