What can DutchSE do for you?

Bringing students and entrepreneurship together

Resources & Network

With DutchSE study associations will be able to get a bigger entrepreneurship network to go to and more resources to work with.


DutchSE maps all the important (inter)national events and summits. We will make sure all information on entrepreneurial events can be found in one place.

Knowledge Sharing

Together with all Dutch entrepreneurial student communities, DutchSE will preserve and share knowledge. All affiliated communities will benefit from knowledge sharing.

What is DutchSE?

Entrepreneurship is good for the economy and employment. many initiatives have sprung up over the last years to aid new and young entrepreneurs with their business dreams. Students are specifically an interesting group and there are various organisations focussed on helping students or graduates in the field of entrepreneurship. There is currently however no national collaboration between these organisations and in that way opportunities are missed in the fields of knowledge-sharing, functional collaboration and logistics. Students, due to this, have difficulties finding entrepreneurial opportunities outside their own student city.

DutchSE joins the forces of local student entrepreneurship communities and in that way creates a strong national network. With that network we can increase the means, knowledge and passion of student entrepreneurship in the Netherlands.
