“Last year I thought was a really nice opportunity because I was finishing my master and I already had an idea that I was always looking to develop. So, it was the perfect opportunity.”
Winner ASML Makers Award 2017

Winner Ideation 2017
“Do what your heart tells you to do and don’t let anybody tell you that your idea is stupid. Learn to enjoy yourself during this time. It’s going to be fine, even if you don’t win.”
Winner Prototyping 2017
“I think if you are a student and you want to start a business or you have an entrepreneurial spirit or business idea: then it’s always nice to be put in a room with other people who are like-minded.”
“Never give up, don't be modest. Just fight for it. It won't be presented on a silver plate but it's worthwhile fighting for.”
Victor van der Chijs,
President University of Twente
“The UT Challenge surpassed all our expectations. Many students with great ideas got in touch with our network of business partners and together they've developed great ideas with real market value. What could you wish more for?”
