A strong start to your business

The Fontys Student Entrepreneur Agreement Proces
Please apply if you are interested in this program. One of our Business Developers will meet with you to get to know you and your business insights.
If you want to be considered for the status, you are going to elaborate and validate your business plan. You do this using the Value Proposition Canvas and the Business Model Canvas.
Once this is worked out, your business developer will invite you to present your business plans to the entire Business Developers team. They will assess whether your plans are sufficiently validated and/or your business is market viable and future-proof.
The final step is to present your business plan in front of an external advisory committee of entrepreneurs who will give you tips and advice to make your business even more successful.
Once you have received official status, you can make use of the associated benefits. Coaching by the business developer will of course continue, even up to 2 years after your graduation.
Please note, the entire admission process takes at least 3 months. Therefore, apply on time if you want to do an internship or graduate within your own company.
