Center for Entrepreneurship @ Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

The Center for Entrepreneurship @ Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (CfE@VU) hosts various unique activities in the field of entrepreneurship.

From 2008 to 2016, VU Amsterdam participated in the Amsterdam Center for Entrepreneurship (ACE), together with University of Amsterdam (UvA), Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, and Amsterdam University of the Arts. Although ACE's set targets were achieved, there was still a clear need to present the university's unique activities in the context of entrepreneurship. CfE@VU was founded on January 1st, 2017 to address this need.

The ACE Venture Lab continued under the wings of UvA. Together with the new incubator at VU Amsterdam, it will be part of a new network of university incubators in Amsterdam.
