Wetsus matchmaking weekend

Published: 6 oktober 2009

In the weekend of October 3 and 4 Wetsus organized the Wetsus Match Making Weekend. This weekend was intended for PhD and MSc students in the field of water technology who have the ambition to set up a business, recently started entrepeneurs and MBA students who want to start a business in the field of sustainable water technology. The aim of the weekend was to bring together the two worlds of technology and entrepreneurship. While sailing over the Wadden Sea, young professionals of both worlds tried to match their ideas to find out whether they can start a new business together.

At day one, there was a lot of time to get to know each other: sailing was impossible because of the stormy weather! But on the second day, still stormy, the group went sailing and that really brought them together.
