Like to get into contact with cyber security talent with a computer science background? And do you want an entrepreneurial business challenge to be researched? Join the Capstone Entrepreneurial 2022! An initiative started in 2018 by TU Delft, University of Twente, Delft Centre for Entrepreneurship and HSD and is running for a several years now.
This year 16 Master students from TU Delft will visit the HSD Campus 10 March and 21 April for a special programme as part of their 'Entrepreneurial Skills Course'. The purpose is to teach the students about entrepreneurship in cyber security and to practice it. Lecturers from the universities will teach the relevant theory and guide the students in their practical work. In total the organisers need around 10 businesses to join the project.
TU Delft would like to ask entrepreneurs to meet with the students at least twice: once on the afternoon of Thursday 10 March, and the second time on the afternoon of Thursday 21 April.
First meeting, Thursday 10 March.
Entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to present their business in a plenary session to the students and the other entrepreneurs. The students will prioritise 3 businesses and the organisers will allocate a group of three students to each business.
Second meeting, Thursday 21 April.
The student teams will present their first findings in a plenary session with all students and entrepreneurs.
What's in it for Entrepreneurs?
TU Delft hopes that by working with entrepreneurs in cyber security, students better understand what it takes to start business activities in cyber security. Some may be inspired to start a business themselves, although the majority will be looking for an inspiring place to work in the near future, which can often be found among entrepreneurial companies.
Thus, taking part in “cyber security capstone entrepreneurship at the HSD Campus” provides the opportunity to get answers to some important questions that you may have and it gives a good first ‘get to know the student’ opportunity, which may facilitate recruiting.
