Student Start-up Competitions: meet PHIA and Gulliver

Wondering whether, why and how you should join start-up competitions?


Tuesday December 3rd, student start-up competitions PHIA (Philips Innovation Award) and Gulliver, along with ELF (the Enterprise Leiden Fund) will be introducing themselves through ex-participants that got a big boost by receiving both funding, exposure and loads of feedback by ‘joining the circus’.


For whom: Do you have a start-up, or are you working on a startup and are you looking to make your next move? This event aims to show you a broad scala of opportunities that you have in the start-up scene. Gulliver, PHIA, ELF and PLNT are there to support your start-up financially, by means of promotion or mentorship. We are here to help, make the most of it.
