Beta Business Days

The Beta Business Days is a unique two-day career event for all students of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Groningen. The event gives the more than 3500 students in the Bachelor’s, Master’s or PhD programme the opportunity to investigate their career prospects and make contacts that could lead to an internship, a thesis project or even a job. A varied programme will bring students of the natural sciences and mathematics in contact with companies with a focus on this area. Companies can deliver a presentation or host a stand to generate brand awareness among the attending students. The general lunch and networking reception will be informal networking opportunities for students and the participating businesses. The programme will also include activities such as case studies/workshops, individual meetings and business lunches for which participants will be selected on the basis of their CV or motivation.

The upcoming edition will take place at the 22nd and 23rd of March 2016 in Martiniplaza, Groningen. If your company is interested in participating at the Beta Business Days 2016, please contact our acquisition at businessrelations@betabusinessdays.nl.

Dear participant of the Beta Business Days,

Thank you for making this years’ edition extra special. With over 40 companies, 700+ students and an opening speaker who came all the way from Switzerland this year was a great success!  For the first time there was a startup competition on the Beta Business Days. This was organized to show students that there are various ways to walk their career path after they have graduated.

The winner of the startup competition is: Finchy!

Finchy is changing the status quo by making art accessible in a way that matches 21sth century’s communication- and accessibility standards. Its in-app, its free and its way more fun then going to a gallery and looking at artwork you’ll never be able to afford.

Finchy won the following prizes:
       ·        An evaluation of your start-up by Emerging Innovation Group
·       An investment of €2.500,- financed by the Beta Business Days. Which can be used to give a boost to your startup. 
·       A training by VentureLab International.

Another feature to this years’ edition was a code battle which was organized by Quintor.
The 1st prize was:

Asus Laptop N55B1JB-CN060P, custom made by Quintor for the developer (Worth: €998,-)

Which was won by Micheal Lekander. Congratulations Micheal.
