The 9th edition of TU/e Contest was once again a great success. More than 50 projects in three categories, with over 150 students from different fields of study, diverse backgrounds and motivations participated in this year's trajectory. Starting with the Meet & Greet in March, followed by many workshops and coaching sessions, the teams made great steps in their entrepreneurial journey and developed many skills which they got to use during the Grand Finale. They repeatedly demonstrated why the Technical University of Eindhoven is known for their level of entrepreneurship and innovation.
