Are you the entrepreneur with a vision to transform the built environment?


BK-launch is the platform for innovation and encouragement of entrepreneurship in the faculty of Architecture & the Built Environment, Delft University of Technology.
Its goal is to create an entrepreneurial community for student ventures, with a vision to transform the Built Environment. Driven by ambitious students active with a (future) venture in the Built Environment. Facilitated by faculty members and Partners whose knowledge, expertise and investment constitute the foundation of the platform. What makes this platform special, is the growing network of advocates of entrepreneurship that form an academic source and example for future entrepreneurs. Their story and experience together with the foundation laid by the Partners serve two MSc Elective courses (AR0131 & AR0144) meant not only to teach students about the importance of entrepreneurship, but also to help their brilliant ideas become potential future ventures.

Committed to fostering innovation, each year BK-Launch tailor makes a program that serves the development of new ventures in the Built Environment. Want to be kept in the loop?
