Upcoming event

Alongside our annual competition, one of the ways that we want to help our community is to share events that will be beneficial in kickstarting your start-up adventure.
That’s another reason why we’re proud and happy to be supported year after year by PLNT – Leiden’s Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
Throughout the year, they organise a number of hackathons, networking events and workshops that have helped countless Leiden start-ups get on their feet.

We’ve hand-picked the most relevant events and workshops on their 2024 calendar for new start-ups.
It’s also a great chance to meet the Gulliver Board in person as we often attend these as well.
As more events are added, we’ll continuously refreshing this page to keep you up-to-date.
