JADS Data Science x Entrepreneurship Student Event
Thursday the 26th of May more than 50 students visited the Verkadefabriek in 's-Hertogenbosch where we hosted the student event Data Science & Entrepreneurship.
With our new master's program Data Science & Entrepreneurship starting next September, we wanted to give interested students the opportunity to learn more about the new Jheronimus Academy of Data Science, the new Joint Master's Program Data Science & Entrepreneurship and most of all give them an impression what's it like to be an data science entrepreneur.
After an introduction by chairman of the day and head of JADS Arjan van den Born, Educational Director Willem-Jan van den Heuvel told vividly about the new Master's Program Data Science & Entrepreneurship that will start coming September. Willem-Jan finished with a heads-on / heads-off quiz! The last three students won a coaching day with Menno Zevenbergen, Head of Innovation Lab at Greenhouse Group.
Menno was also our next speaker and as a next generation data scientist gave a glance into the future of the opportunities of upcoming new technologies for us data scientist.
Next up: Joost Gielen, entrepreneur and founder of Werkspot & Freshheads. In a staggering half an hour Joost showed more than 20 businesses he started. One more succesful than the other. His lessons learned: learn fast, fail or scale and...try everything!
After a short break Maurits Kaptein continued. Maurits is a social scientist, author & entrepreneur at Data Science Centre Tilburg & Science Rockstars and one of the teachers at the new Master's Program Data Science and Entrepreneurship. Maurits told a lot about clever data driven online marketing strategies that optimize marketing efforts and help increase engaging with your audience.
And last but not least Arko van Brakel: 100% entrepreneur, 100% inspiration and 100% energy! As a seasoned entrepreneur Arko had a lot of experience to share about being an entrepreneur and a new way of working together as a team.
Afterwards students had the opportunity to chat with the speakers and get to know our lecturers from the new Master’s program Data Science & Entrepreneurship! We received a lot of enthusiastic responds and for us it was a great way to get to know some of our future students who we hope to welcome in Marienburg next September!
