Once a year the Humanities Venture Lab organises a boot camp for students, alumni and employees of the Faculty of Humanities who want to use their academic knowledge to get started as entrepreneurs. The Bootcamp programme goes through all stages of starting a business and connects participants with mentors, experts and entrepreneurs.

Do you want to follow your passion and make a difference by developing your idea into your own initiative? Are you a student, employee or alumnus with a great idea that can make an impact, but don't know where to start? Sign up for the Humanities Bootcamp to learn the basics of entrepreneurship. The programme goes through all stages of starting a business and helps you to develop an entrepreneurial mindset to start your social enterprise, non-profit organisation or innovative start-up. During the week you will work with mentors, experts and entrepreneurs to develop your entrepreneurial skills and to get you started.


The four-day bootcamp includes:

  • interactive lectures and workshops about themes such as legal and financial issues, thinking about your target audience and more;
