NTNU School of Entrepreneurship was a main part of the agenda when the Minister of Education and Research, Torbjørn Røe Isaksen (C) visited Trondheim and NTNU on the 5th of March. The purpose of the visit to NSE was to get more insight into how students earn their degree, while they also start up their own businesses. Isaksen and his delegation received a short presentation by the award winning startup Aalberg Audio, and the CERN-linked startup Tind Technologies.
The Minister was impressed by the business activities and the dynamic environment within the School of Entrepreneurship. Accompanied by NTNUs Rector Gunnar Bovim, and Pro-rector for Innovation at NTNU, Johan Hustad, Isaksen was able to talk to some of the students and their aspiring startups.
The Anniversary Conference which was held to celebrate 10 years with NTNU School of Entrepreneurship School was a great success with many familiar faces showing up.
10 years have passed since the School of Entrepreneurship was founded, and in 10 years the school has graduated business developers who have started million dollar companies, have become intrepreneurs in large corporations and strong strategic advisors. This anniversary was celebrated with an anniversary conference followed by a grand celebration by the current students and returning alumni.
The program for the anniversary conference contained a wide range of great names. Head of the Enterprise Federation of Norway, Vibeke Hammer Madsen, Rector of NTNU, Gunnar Bovim and Verdande-founder Sebastian Stein to name a few. Enthusiasm among this year’s students were noticeably, and the joy of experiencing further 10 years at NTNU School of Entrepreneurship are present.
Happy Birthday, ES!
