20 Year Anniversary Netwerk Jonge Ondernemers

20 Year Anniversary Netwerk Jonge Ondernemers


This year we celebrate 20 years of Ready to StartUp! (formerly known as Writing a Business Plan), a program started under the umbrella of the Young Entrepreneurs Network (Netwerk Jonge Ondernemers, or NJO). We are proud to continue to contribute to this highly successful ecosystem, nowadays partnering with the YES!Delft incubator: "for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs".

Whether your startup got off the ground or not, I am sure that you have a story of entrepreneurship worth sharing. The 20-year anniversary of the NJO is the perfect occasion to bring together everyone, alumni and all those connected to the course in some way, to share these stories and to celebrate entrepreneurship.

You are cordially invited for drinks at the YES!Delft incubator on December 15. The Ready to Startup! event will start at 6 p.m. (following the announcement of the YES!Delft LaunchLab Autumn 2016 winner at 5:30 p.m.). Among the evening's speakers will be Gert-Jan Poortman, the Dutch Volvo Ocean Race sailor who set up Team Brunel in 2014. The full program will be announced soon.

Throughout the evening, we will share stories of 20 years of Ready to Startup!, and would like to include your insights. A brief survey can be accessed via the link in the menu above. The survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. Even if you are not joining the event, we would greatly appreciate your input.

Please feel free to share this invitation with your fellow classmates, peers, coaches and others linked to NJO and its programs. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at Readyto.Startup@rolandberger.com.

We hope to welcome you on the 15th!

On behalf of the RtS!/NJO team,

Brian Joseph and Benno van Dongen
