Professional guidance and an adapted short training course consisting of several workshops will ensure that your team is able to complete the project successfully. The result is a satisfied company with an implementable solution and 5 satisfied students with an improved and comprehensive skillset.

In addition to the hard work, there is also time for fun during the various team building sessions and the member party!

Student consulting has its reputation for bringing big names from the industry to the students. Since 2007 we give students the opportunity to expand their network by bringing them in contact with not only big, innovative multinationals but also with smaller companies that want fresh insights from university students.

In 2018, the Airproducts team even won the award of Best Project of Europe by JE Europe, which shows that a team of 5 motivated students can accomplish a lot in 10 weeks.

Project Startup


CREATE YOUR OWN STARTUP

Have you always dreamed of your own company, but you don't have the right idea or the right team yet? Are you thinking about starting your own company later but you don't have the right skillsets yet? Starting this year, AFC launches Project Startup in which a team of 4 students is put together, each with a passion for entrepreneurship, in order to create a startup from scratch for one year.

In collaboration with Cronos Leuven, workshops and coaching sessions are provided. The team can also make exclusive use of the Cronos Leuven co-working space. A complete immersion in the culture and the network of this incubator ensure efficient cross-fertilisation, which only encourages brainstorming and reflection. Furthermore, a budget of €1000 is provided to allow for development and in no way hinder the opportunities and possibilities of the team.


Some themes will be suggested that can be used to get the idea for your startup. Within these themes we will look for opportunities and further possibilities. Ideation, business model canvas and pitching workshops will help you develop your concept into a concrete scalable business. At the final pitch your product will be presented.

As this is the launching year of this project, students will not be able to receive ECTS credits for their work. However being the showpiece from AFC experience, this project is the perfect project to learn and grow tremendously.
