In addition to being a student, are you also an entrepreneur with your own company? Then you might be suitable for the Special Entrepreneurship Arrangement at AUAS.

The arrangement

The Special Entrepreneurship Arrangement offers the following facilities:

To be regarded as an entrepreneur you must meet the following five criteria:

  1. You are a student in the main phase.
  2. You have passed your propaedeutic phase and are enrolled in a study program at the AUAS.
  3. Your company is registered with the Kamer van Koophandel.
  4. You own, at least for a substantial part, this company.
  5. The company is scalable and there are clear plans to scale up this company and there is substantial economic activity.

In addition, a number of other criteria, which are included in the arrangement, are also taken into account.

In the arrangement is described how these facilities are set up for students who meet the criteria. The arrangement also contains guidelines for students who want to graduate in their own company.
