On Wednesday May 17th NHTV Leisure student Max de Beijer won the 4th edition of the NHTV Startup Festival, in the category ‘best startup’, with his company Talent Meets Talent (www.tothemaxentertainment.com).
The NHTV Startup Festival offers entrepreneurial students a competitive platform to present their startup business or business idea to a jury of professionals and an audience of students, alumni and entrepreneurs. During the award show videos of the 8 nominees were presented to the audience. After each video nominees pitched their startup and answered questions from both the jury and the audience live on stage. The best NHTV Startup, the best NHTV Business Idea and Public’s Favorite were chosen and received an award. We closed this spectacular evening with a party!
