Support for foundersBusiness creation is developed through dedicated curricular courses (business model and business plan development, entrepreneurship and starting a company) as well as the extracurricular Founders Lab for business ideas, business models and companies. As support and inspiration, Start-up Service (Accent) and graduates with business-founding experience are invited to talk to students about support and assistance options, as well as their own experiences. Networking is encouraged through 'regulars' tables' and company visits. In courses and through the extracurricular FoundersLab, students can develop business ideas and convert them to business plans. The basic idea of the concept is to generate value for customers. Moreover, the IBE programme offers a specialisation (focal subject) in Development of Export Opportunities, which deals with the development, marketing and financing of products and innovation.
