Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship (ECE) is proud to announce a new strategic partnership with Microlab Rotterdam and is relocating to Microlab at the Aert van Nesstraat 45, 3012 CA Rotterdam. This change marks an important milestone for ECE and opens new opportunities to increase the societal impact of entrepreneurship

Partnership with Microlab

Located at the city's core, Microlab is dedicated to fostering a diverse community of entrepreneurs. By joining forces, we aim to blend our dedication to positive societal impact and entrepreneurial excellence with Microlab's innovative hands-on practices. In this way, we want to give all entrepreneurs in our city the support they need to succeed in starting and scaling their companies and share their knowledge with the local entrepreneurial ecosystem. Additionally, we are excited about our increased ability to assist academics and students with their research endeavours, linking academics with starting entrepreneurs in the field and, in turn, engaging the ecosystem in pioneering new domains and scientific exploration.

Through this partnership, ECE and Microlab prioritise societal impact by embracing a wide range of groups and communities locally and globally. Microlab, designed for creators, maintains robust ties to the creative and cultural sectors through a maker's approach. We are pleased to support entrepreneurs in these industries using our academically endorsed expertise from Erasmus University Rotterdam. 


Keep an eye on our updates for more news about this partnership, meeting the people who 'make it happen' and opportunities for EUR community members to collaborate with us in hands-on experimentation and research sessions. Our doors are open! Come by on Thursday, March 28th from 16:30 onwards for an office tour and a welcome drink. To RSVP, please fill in this form. We encourage you to sign up early, as we have a limited number of spots available.
