WE ARE YES!DELFT STUDENTS
We believe in the innovative ideas of students. By questioning all, they are the source of great ideas that one day will change both our society and economy. Our events, programs, and courses provide students with all that is needed to turn ideas into startups. Nurturing and educating students to become successful entrepreneurs.
Connecting our community of experts, mentors, corporate partners, and teachers with our students, we are the place WHERE STUDENTS BECOME ENTREPRENEURS.
YES!Delft opened the doors to its first location in 2005 as one of the first incubators in the Netherlands – next to the campus of the Delft University of Technology. YES!Delft Students was born from YES!Delft in 2009, started to organize events and plan an educational system to focus on the development of students to entrepreneurs. Today, we reach over 8000 students a year with our events. Converting over 200 students to become entrepreneurs and help with the founding of over 80 student startups in the last 5 years.
Over the years, we have to build a strong community that is self-sustaining and aids each individual in the development of a student to an entrepreneur.
How do we differentiate ourselves? There are currently 10 student entrepreneurial associations in the Netherlands, each connected to an incubator. We differentiate from these associations by working full-time instead of part-time and offer in addition to events, also educational courses, and student startup programs to actually help students become entrepreneurs. We take no equity as we are a non-profit organization. We believe that the students and student entrepreneurs come first and we value quality over quantity.
