Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation Maastricht University

Start-Up programme

The Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation offers programs for those students and staff who want to explore the possibility of setting up their own business. These programs are Build-your-Business-Case (BCB) and Milestones (MS)

During BCB the feasibility and opportunities related to the proposed business ideas are explored. Using validated methods we assist and help students and staff to explore the potential of their idea, fine-tune their idea, provide access to business experts, and provide insight into the reality of starting their own business. The current program will run starting September 30th and finish November 11th. Weekly meetings are scheduled on Wednesdays. No scheduled activities will take during exam periods as not to interfere with your study program. The program is free of charge.

During Milestones potential entrepreneurs are supported in making their business idea/case a reality. Market validation is key in this second program. Aims of MS include making the first sale, creating a working prototype, establishing the network required, and setting up the day-to-day operations. While BCB consist of an established programme with clear steps, progress in the Milestones program is dependent on the situation of the respective start-ups. As such this programme is a tailor-made programme based on the needs and wants of your particular start-up. Both programmes can be followed separately or as a consequetive programme and are extra-curricular in nature.


The first MILESTONES program will start November 2020. Please contact us if you have any questions.
