How StartUps Shape Our Future

Entrepreneurial Inspiration Day


For the past five years UniPartners Rotterdam, a non-profit organisation linked to the Erasmus University Rotterdam, has organised the Entrepreneurial Inspiration Day (EID). After successful collaboration with the former Dutch prime minister Jan-Peter Balkenende, the co-founder of Radio 538 Erik de Zwart and several successful international start-ups such as Housing Anywhere and Symbid, this years aim is to host another successful and inspiring event.
At the moment the website is still under constructing and we are working hard to update it as soon as possible.

About the EID

EID '17


This years EID Edition will truly stand out in a sense that we strongly aim at making it as international as possible, having a strong focus on personal development by sharing life experiences and building a sustainable future. With that in mind, our aspiration is to inspire 150 (international) participants to gain a responsible worldview that will guide them in understanding and being ready to embrace the multitude of challenges that the future will bring.
