The EIT Startup Days is a 54-hour event where students, graduates, researchers, developers, designers, young professionals, entrepreneurs, and start-up enthusiasts from different backgrounds come together to share ideas, form teams, build products/services and embark on entrepreneurial adventures.
During the weekend, the teams are supported by mentors and coaches on site, who help the teams refine the business model for their ideas. At the end of the event, the teams pitch their ideas to a local jury where a winner is selected.
In its second edition, the Startup Days event in 2016 is taking place in 6 European cities simultaneously, including Eindhoven.
The Things Network is one of the partners of the startup days and provides hardware to build innovative products with. TTN experts will be available all weekend to provide support, giving participants the chance to realize end-to-end IoT prototypes.
