11-13 June 2010: Wetsus Match Making Weekend
Apr 13th, 2010 |
Brussels, 13 April 2010. Wetsus, Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Water Technology and Member of the European Water Partnership, organizes the second edition of the Wetsus Match Making Weekend which will take place in the weekend of 11–13 June. The event aims to bring together the two worlds of technology and entrepreneurship in the search for opportunities lying in the water sector.
While sailing over the Wadden Sea or around the Ijssel Lake, young professionals of both worlds will try to match their ideas to find out how to start a new business together and will be invited to present their results at the end of the weekend. The winner will be admitted to attend the Wetsus Rabobank Water Business Challenge. In a casual atmosphere you can share your ideas and personal drives with the other participants. The weekend is intended for PhD and MSc students in the field of water technology, for young entrepreneurs, and for MBA students with an entrepreneurial background and interest in water technology.
