About the Venture Academy

The Venture Academy is an initiative of PLNT, the Leiden Centre for Innovation and EntrepreneurshipThe academy supports student entrepreneurs in the development of a new start-up by offering workshops that provide them with the tools and methods needed to help build business skills.

Currently, there are eight selected teams enrolled. Each team is provided with an iterative ten week program that equips them to enter the market place by the end of the program. Throughout the program we advocate and encourage a high level of self-initiative and a professional business ethos. The student entrepreneurs are not in it for ECTs. The objective is to start a business and make a profit.
