Jente de Peuter – Acquisitor Let’s get Started 2016-2017
“On May 3th 2017 we organised the start-up event Let’s Get Started with our committee. During this event entrepreneurial students get in touch with the world of start-ups and learn a lot about the opportunities and pitfalls of starting an own start-up.
We reserved a beautiful space at the Zuiderkerk, so the event had a very nice atmosphere. In the main hall there were a lot of stands with the owners of start-ups as well as some larger companies that could help with starting your own start-up. In smaller rooms we arranged various workshop for the students. For instance, there were workshops about bringing an idea into reality, protecting a branding name, doing marketing successfully and receiving certain subsidiaries.
As an acquisition member I was responsible for attracting the start-ups and organisations, which was a very nice and challenging experience. I had close contact with all of the contact persons and tried to make a good deal for both of the parties. After a lot of calling and visiting, it was very nice to see all of these organizations at the event.
Let’s Get Started is for sure an awesome and challenging event to organise that teaches you a lot and, above all, gives an experience to remember.”
