CEMS Entrepreneurs and NHH are hosting a hands-on skill seminar on "How to start a business - from idea to product” on April 21st.

What makes a successful start-up?

High on the list is most definitely the founder's ability to go from a mere idea to a working solution that people actually want to buy. Although it is more an art than a science, there are proven methods to help (aspiring) entrepreneurs perform better at launching innovative businesses…

and who is better placed to teach these methods than a CEO who raised close to $600M and sold her business just a couple of weeks ago?

Learn how to quickly launch, validate, and iterate business ideas and avoid common pitfalls of start-ups.

The seminar takes place online so all CEMSies can join.
Apply until April 15 - limited spots!

Would you like to work in the startup ecosystem? For example at a startup, accelerator, venture capital firm or in the innovation department of a corporate?

On our Job Board you can find jobs that were recommended by CEMSies for CEMSies with a focus on the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Most jobs were submitted by CEMS founders themselves but there are also positions in venture capital and at innovative corporates.
Many startup jobs are never advertised but filled through the founder’s network. CEMS Entrepreneurs helps you to get access to those “hidden” internships and jobs at tier 1 VC backed startups through a 1:1 matchmaking.

Most positions in the program are remote first and suitable for students and recent graduates.


As the community is growing we are looking for entrepreneurial, enthusiastic and fun CEMS students and alumni to drive new initatives and expand the network.


Our entrepreneurship-focused and highly-interactive skill seminars are open to CEMS students and alumni and accredited with 0.25 ECTS.
