Option E provided me with a structured process and a save environment to dedicate
three month of my study time to entrepreneurship. Together with an interdisciplinary
team of students we focused on coming up with ideas, evaluating them and
testing them on the market. Thanks to Option E, today I can work on creating my
own company and hopefully become a successful entrepreneur.

Typical semesters have two spikes, middle and end. You learn, you forget. You more or less know
what you get into beforehand. It’s routine. I wanted to step out of this routine, take away
more than studied facts, experience something new, challenge what I thought I was or wasn’t
capable of, and meet a bunch of likeminded people. I’m still quite amazed that I got this
and so much more from these three months. And with the amazing people
organizing and continually improving the experience, I’m sure you will, too. If you
bring motivation and the willingness to step outside your comfort zone, go for it!

Studying at Option E, it's working on various projects
and innovation trends with people from different backgrounds:
designers, researchers, engineers. You have to be flexible or you will learn
how to. And that's cool, for sure!
