The starting point for students with

entrepreneurial ambitions


Our mission

We initiate the idea of entrepreneurship
as a career choice among students and we bring entrepreneurship closer to students of Eindhoven by organizing events that inspire, motivate and connect.

Kickoff EHV is the community for student entrepreneurs in Eindhoven. By organizing events we inspire students from all Universities and studies to take on entrepreneurial challenges and facilitate them in starting their own business.

We have ties with different entrepreneurial initiatives and (educational) organizations throughout Eindhoven. We want to bundle the power of all these partners to strengthen the entrepreneurial climate for students.
