“The long-term effects of development projects in third world countries are often disputed. However, if you help local people to set up a business of their own, you have made a lasting impact.”
This minor focuses on technological entrepreneurship in developing countries. The program is split in two parts. First, you will follow courses on cultural differences, businessplans, project planning and much more. These serve as a preparation for the second part: an internship project on location in a developing country.
To apply for this minor, you will have to register through the OSIRIS platform, which is available for TU Delft students. In addition, you will have to write a letter of motivation. You can read more about the selection procedure and the letter at the more information tab.
This minor will be taught in Dutch.
You will learn about the role of entrepreneurship in global inequality and sustainable development. In addition, you will put your learning into practices during a 3 month internship in a different cultural setting.
