Innovation, Co-Creation and Global Impact
In an increasingly interconnected world, young minds can act on innovation much faster than before. Discover your potential to develop meaningful ideas with global impact.
This minor teaches you how to turn your ideas into reality. In this minor you will develop scientific knowledge across different disciplines, focus on the development of skills and build confidence by getting things done. In a team of students with different backgrounds, you will search for new, untested ideas, and develop an initiative that has impact on society. Your team is challenged to develop a business plan and to set up a crowd-funding campaign. With that funding you will design your own experiment to test the assumptions underpinning your idea. Finally you will learn how to scale your start-up to a global level.
This minor from the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs aims to educate, coach and train a new breed of entrepreneurial thinkers We encourage students to go beyond what is considered ‘routine’ today. Hence, during the minor you will develop an entrepreneurial skills set and attitude and learn how to apply academic knowledge in practice. You will be coached by a mentor working in practice; we are proud to announce that amongst others Siemens, Bird&Bird, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Municipality of The Hague and the FMO Development Bank are contributing to this minor.
