The Doodle for carpooling

 

We propose to organizers and participants of every event a carpooling organizational tool improving road safety. Via a dedicated link shared by the organizers, each participant can securely propose or ask for a ride on an interactive map. Passengers are questioned the day after the event about the alcohol consumption of the driver, allowing a social control to take place in the form of a trust indicator for each driver.

THE 1st EDITION

SESSY 2017

A National Ceremony

In recent years more and more students are launching their own project.

These student entrepreneurs however lack visibility.  Therefore, UStart Belgium & EO want to provide the opportunity, for these student entrepreneurs, to show what they are doing and this to a national and international audience.

The Final ceremony of the SESSY is the perfect networking opportunity to meet with potential investors & advisors and to enjoy a walking dinner with the Belgium’s largest student entrepreneurs community.
