At this first networking event, we will bring together students from Rotterdam and students from Delft; so that you can discuss common interests and ultimately form teams to compete in the Cleantech Challenge Netherlands. The process of participating in the Cleantech Challenge consists of attending workshops given by renowned professionals passionate about sustainable business so that you can both strengthen your idea technically and strengthen your business plan.
