The 2020 edition of the Student Startup Trip is bound to New York City!

Each year, AFT Leuven organizes the Student Startup Trip to a foreign startup ecosystem. We bring together a group of ambitious students with an entrepreneurial mindset. We want to inspire these students, broaden their horizon and give them a unique experience.

On this trip, we aim to visit startups, investors, incubators, larger companies, multinationals, universities, and much more! This way, we can provide the students with a complete view of what the location has to offer.
