In ben Spanjaard, en zeer vereerd hét Nederlandse exportproduct, de fiets, te vermarkten en met mijn bedrijf Nederland in Bangkok te vertegenwoordigen."

Wij geloven dat de wereld rijp is voor het delen van nieuwe ideeën, sterke oplossingen en krachtige visies. Wij hebben ervaren dat mensen en teams impact maken, als ze dit communiceren vanuit hun eigen kracht. Vaak gaat het ook mis, omdat mensen bijvoorbeeld niet hun eigen verhaal vertellen, beïnvloed worden door tal van belemmeringen of geen idee hebben welke skillset je kunt inzetten om impact te maken.

MC4E Students is the student community at the Maastricht Centre for Entrepreneurship. We are a vibrant community of startup enthusiasts who enjoy inspiring each other by organising events, workshops, networking sessions, and providing support for any student wishing to found their own company.
Our large network consists of partners in the region of Limburg and beyond, who are our allies in stimulating young people in Maastricht and help boost the local economy.
We organise two large-scale events every year: Maastricht Entrepreneurship Week in May, and Global Entrepreneurship Week Maastricht in November.
Programs like the Local Hero Award (http://ufl-swol.nl/index.php/en/local-heroes) and the Innovator’s Challenge (http://www.mc4e.nl/gew/innovator-challenge/) are key events which define our approach in encouraging students to become more entrepreneurial.
By closely working together with our incubator Launchbase students also get the chance to pursue a professional track to start-up their own companies.
Lugus believes that innovative startups are greatly important for the Dutch economy. Students offer solutions for the problems we will encounter in the future.
That is why we help students in starting their companies. By bundling our knowledge, network and expertise of seasoned entrepreneurs, companies and education we help students to realize their idea into a new successful business.
We offer a pre-incubator where students from Leiden, with the wish to become an entrepreneur, come together to accelerate there business.
Lugus connects students with existing companies, from the philosophy that cross-pollination leads to new insights, innovative ideas, and successful enterprises.
We also offer a variety of activities, like knowledge exchange, networking drinks, the entrepreneurs lunch, pitch training and a entrepreneurship competition.
