Inspiring Fair & Workshops


Let’s Get Started brings entrepreneurial minded students in contact with organisations that are relevant when starting up a business. Students are provided with hands-on, practical knowledge with regard to the process of starting up their own business. But even if you are not interested in founding a startup this will be an interesting event for you, it gives you the possibility to orient yourself for your future workplace. Would you rather work at a big corporate or start your career at a startup?

Let’s Get Started will deliver all of this through an all-day-long fair, exciting workshops and inspirational speakers. The day ends with a networking drink, which gives you the opportunity to get in direct contact with the participating companies and start-ups in an informal way. This is the perfect opportunity for you to gain more information about how to start a business, to get inspired by compelling stories and to have a fun time with like-minded people.

Startups and other companies will provide you with hands-on practical information and are happy to answer all your questions about your business ideas. You can either be very specific with your questions, or broadly explore the field of interest. Regardless, we encourage you to proactively approach the companies and develop conversations with the representatives! We strongly advise you to conduct a background research and come prepared as this way you are able to connect your prior experience and get the most out of this event; furthermore it is always advisable to bring your business card and/or your polished CV. Among the companies to be present at the fair you will meet the teams of Rabobank, Bloomon, EVBox, Testbirds, Innovation Exchange Amsterdam and Jobs & Media Group                  
After a day of talking to companies, attending workshops and socializing with fellow attendees, you are kindly invited to further extend your network with a refreshing drink! Note that the companies attending the networking drinks are allowed to recruit, so bring your business cards and use this unique opportunity to get one step further towards your dream job.
How to start a successful business and disrupt an industry
All successful new businesses start with a good idea. But a good idea is not enough, you need the right circumstances and the right people to bring the idea to life!
At bloomon, we make art and science come together. We are building a global love brand, spreading happiness everywhere we go. At the same time, we use data and technology to disrupt an entire traditional industry.
During this workshop we will give you insight in the challenges we face every day, and how we tackle them. You will work on a real live case and advise us on the best solution. Maybe your idea will be put into action!
Do you want to experience the adventure of working at a fast growing startup? Do you want to know how to grow a successful business? Sign up for the bloomon workshop!

The Internet has immensely changed entrepreneurship. It might seem easier than ever to do business internationally but there are many things to consider to actually make it into a success. What do you need to think of when it comes to entering foreign markets? How do you know which markets to move into? Should you set up shop abroad in the first place? In this workshop Andrew Maat, Director International Markets at Testbirds, will share his thoughts and experiences on foreign markets and international business.

Want to be part of the future and learn more about accelerating the transition towards a zero emission world? Do you know Tesla but are you not sure how E-mobility actually works? Want to know more about a cool, fast growing, Clean Tech company? Then join the EVBox Workshop!
We will discuss during this workshop why the transition towards E-Mobility is so important, which trends we spot in the market and what the e-mobility future will look like.
Of course we want you guys to be as excited as we are about clean energy so we will ask your input on various topics such as Autonomous Driving, Energy Storage and E-Mobility. In groups you will think about these topics and brainstorm about innovative solutions which you will present to the other groups in the end.

Peaks is a simple and beautifully designed Dutch app that makes it possible for everybody to set aside small amounts of money regularly and automatically invest in a portfolio of sustainable ETFs. In 2017, Peaks was founded with the idea that it should be possible for everyone to feel financially free. Not just for people who follow the stock market or read The Financial Times. No, at Peaks we believe that anyone who has a bank account, some money and a bit of patience can invest. Thanks to the support of Rabobank, Peaks is now a successful growing company! During the workshop, you are asked to think as an IT-consultant for Peaks. After a product introduction/demo, you and your team are given some time to come up with new developments for the product. How can Peaks extend its services? What are possible improvements of the App version? Note: Deadline for this workshop is 9th of May - at 23:59
