WHAT is the company

The Company is a company for and by students that has been managed by the master engineering students at the University of Antwerp since 2011. With this initiative we want to give students a taste of entrepreneurship and help them to gain experience in the business world. We achieve this through good support from professors, as well as by supervising student SPB projects, but also through company pitches and other events students are prepared for the business world. To make all this possible, it is important for The Company to maintain connections with companies / partners so that we can count on them.


The company organizes several Inspirational Lectures every year where different entrepreneurs come to tell their experience and story to our students. We also organize a Dragons Den for the students of the 2nd year. Here the selected students with the best ideas are given the opportunity to pitch their product / service to a jury. We try to organize these events at different locations in Antwerp. The company receives support for this from sponsors and works together with a number of partners who make it possible to realize these events. It is also thanks to our partners that the students have the opportunity to offer their product on certain sales days and participate in competitions.


We are looking for a few speakers for the inspirational lectures  who want to share their experiences with the students of The Company, this can vary from starting to already successful entrepreneurs. These events are always very educational and always leave a good impression on the students. In addition to speakers for our Inpirational Lectures, we also need a few jury members to give feedback to students of the Dragons Den. Can you help us with a great location in or near the city of Antwerp or are you an entrepreneur and you want to tell his story to our students, please feel free to contact us! You can always contact us if you have any other questions or if you are interested in The Company.
