Meer informatie over jouw initiatief / More info about your initiative

International students in the Netherlands face great challenges when they want to develop experience and skills by finding a side job during their studies. They can’t find a job as easily as Dutch students. That has mainly to do with the work permit the international students need to get when they find employment at a company.

Our Startup is offering a solution by making use of self-employment permits. Companies can then hire international students by circumventing the process of the work permit. This creates flexibility for both parties. To make it even easier and faster, we are building a platform where companies and students can find each other. The platform will give the companies the ability to post a job whenever they want while the students can react to it if they view it as interesting.

Wat zijn jouw volgende stappen om het verder te ontwikkelen? / What are your next steps to develop the initiative?

We are building the platform and increasing our network in Enschede Kennispark (Because we are currently located there.)

Wat heb je nodig om (nog meer) impact te maken met dit initiatief? / What do you need to make (more) impact with this initiative?

We need to connect with other big educational institutions in The Netherlands like TU Delft and TU Eindhoven. Because a lot of the international talent and big companies are located there.
