Studenten vinden duurzame fintech-oplossingen voor regionale ondernemers

Students find sustainable Fintech solutions for regional enterprises

Reading time Minutes

For months, students studying the Business Models & Financial Technology minor debated organisational issues with regard to economics, financial technology and sustainability.

As part of the minor, which is now offered under the name Digital Business Models & Blockchain, students learn how they can create value through digital technology and how a business model can contribute to a sustainable economy. Ultimately, they will be able to provide advice about digital developments and new business models.  

On Friday 8 February, they presented their findings to various businesses in the region.

Working with a number of regional fintech companies, the students were given the opportunity to apply this knowledge. After performing the problem analysis, using a consultancy product, the students provided insight into sustainable packaging cycles, launched an app to monitor water consumption in agriculture and horticulture and they came up with cost-effective uses of recycled materials in the construction sector.

The results were recorded in short video pitches and were presented to fellow students and the clients during the final session.
