Final day Ready to Startup

Final day Ready to Startup


Welcome to the event site for the Final Day of this semester's Ready to Startup!.

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to attend the Final Day. For 20 years, many talented entrepreneurs-to-be have participated in the highly successful entrepreneurship program Ready to Startup! at YES!Delft. This semester's Final Day will take place on Wednesday, February 10th at YES!Delft, Molengraafsingel 12 in Delft. The programme kicks off at 13:00 and concludes with an award ceremony and drinks from 18:30 to 19:30. 

Over the course of the Final Day, four teams will present their business ideas, and their pitches as well as the teams themselves will be judged by an expert jury. Between rounds, inspiring talks will be given on the similarities between entrepreneurship and (professional) sports. You will have the opportunity to speak with our keynote speakers, and with other guests and entrepreneurs present. Our keynote speakers are:

  • Klaas Vermeulen: silver medal winner with the Dutch hockey team in the London Olympics (2012) and now partner at  Barqo
  • Paul Mignot (top-50 finisher at the Marathon des Sables (2015), the "toughest foot race on Earth") and Duco van Lanschot (fellow Marathon des Sables top-50 finisher and current head of Blendle International) 


The participating students will present the business plans they have been working on over the past few months to you and to the expert jury. The jury – made up of entrepreneurs, investors and strategy consultants – will award the best two plans with checks for EUR 1,500 and EUR 1,000.

From the menu tabs above, you can register, view the programme and get directions. 


With kind regards,

YES!Delft Students
