JOIN THE UT CHALLENGE AND GET THE CHANCE TO EXPAND YOUR NETWORK & WIN AWARDS WORTH UP TO €5.000!

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. With the help from our innovative and knowledgeable partners and the UT, in between and during fun and educational events.

The UT Challenge has grown into a platform that every student can benefit from. In previous editions, over 1000 of 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.

The 6th edition of the UT Entrepreneurial Challenge will start early 2022. Preregister now and be the first to receive the invitation to join! No idea yet? Cool Ideation Sessions will be there to help!
