200 vocational school students are business owners for a day
On Wednesday, 12 October JINC will team up with ABN AMRO to host the first edition of ‘Starting up your own business in 1 day’. This exciting project gives 200 students from preparatory secondary vocational schools in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Leeuwarden an opportunity to experience, for one day, what it is like to run a business. Supervising the students will be fifty of ABN AMRO’s people, who will take them to visit remarkable local businesses. ‘It’s important that young people see the practical side of running a business. In this rapidly evolving labour market, people need qualities such as flexibility, self-reliance and an enterprising mindset,’ explains Daniël Roos (director of JINC).
