History: UtrechtVC and UtrechtCE

The history of the Centre for Entrepreneurship lies with the Utrecht Valorisation Centre (UtrechtVC) that was founded with help of the Dutch Government in 2011 and lasted till 2016. These efforts have laid the groundwork for the establishment of the Utrecht Centre for Entrepreneurship, a joint initiatieve between Utrecht University and Utrecht University of Applied Sciences within UtrechtVC.

Now, in 2018, the Centre for Entrepreneurship has a focus on Utrecht University, but works closely with other regional education providers and partners.
