So what can you expect?

Useful skills

Each workshop focuses on learning and applying these skills. During the sessions you will do interactive exercises, including with the other participants. This way you not only learn new skills, but you can also inspire each other.

Fun events

It is recommended that you stick around after the workshop to get to know the other participants a little better during the PLNT drinks. You might even make a new friend or find a co-founder!

Feedback & support

During the sessions, a trainer is present to explain the essence of the skill you want to learn.


You have access to the entire network of PLNT. Know that we have connections in almost every layer and sector that you can connect with. In addition, PLNT Students board members are present during the sessions. This is the student association for entrepreneurial students in Leiden. During the session you can get to know them and they will tell you more about the association.

Accountability, action & progress

Skills only grow if you make time for them. So if you sign up, you are also required to attend the session. After the training you will have a new skill and know how to apply it yourself. Pretty worth it, right?
