Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences

Are you curious how the founders of a startup came up with their idea? How they formed their team? What help have they received? When they really stopped believing in it? And when they were sure it was going to work? Then Meet the Founders is the event for you!

During this Meet the Founders, Merijn Everaarts will tell you something about his company Dopper. Dopper wants to get rid of plastic consumption so much that they will immediately stop the company once the mission has been achieved.

The founder!

Merijn Everaarts, entrepreneur in heart and soul and founder of Dopper. Who doesn't know the company that sells sustainable water bottles ?! As an entrepreneur, Merijn mainly focuses on the theme of sustainability. Less plastic and less animal products. Why did he choose a career as an entrepreneur? What setbacks did he have and how did he get back up? These are questions that you will get answers to during this Meet the Founders.

Come to this session and ask him all about it!

Meet the founder series

During the Global Entrepreneurship Week we organize various (digital) living room conversations with founders of innovative startups. They tell about their start-up journey and you can then ask them any questions to learn from their experience or to discover whether entrepreneurship is something for you!
