TCE is Tilburg University’s expertise center on entrepreneurship. An entrepreneurial mindset is important in empowering people to be creative and innovative and enabling them to make a difference in society. That’s why TCE encourages entrepreneurship among students, alumni, academics and employees alike. We have a proactive role in developing entrepreneurial education for all students at Tilburg University.
