At SEA, we help students with business ideas to give them the best possible starting point to make their ideas come true and start their business, but we also offer cool entrepreneurial and career activities to all students. In particular, we focus on matching students who want to use their skills in a real-life context with our many interesting startups. This can be as an intern, writing a project, working together temporally on a case or a longer commitment as a team member in a startup.


You will get the opportunity to challenge yourself, test your skills, gather relevant work experience, gain insight into entrepreneurship, upgrade your resume and make yourself unique to a potential employer. Does it sound interesting for you and would you consider boosting your career opportunities? Then these events are relevant for you!
