Feel like an inspiring conversation? An opportunity for new collaborations? Or just a stimulating encounter with a good glass of wine? Join us at the Eindhoven Innovation Café. The spot where people from the arts, design, research and technology interact. We are aiming for a weekly program full of inspiring pitches, expert talks, discussions as well as workshops, lasting up to half an hour parallel to the drinks. English spoken. Of course.

Having a great idea is the first and essential step for a start-up, but not the only one. What else do you need? Bringing your ideas to life is also a matter of acquiring the right tools and an entrepreneurial mindset.

Idea2StartUp is an open format event intended for anyone who wants to convert their idea or project into a start-up. Through engaging and practical oriented sessions we will provide you a boost to take action in following your business creation ambitions.
