About

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 will form an academic source and example for future entrepreneurs. Their story and experience together with the foundation laid by the Partners will 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. However, BK-Launch doesn’t stop there. We aspire to achieve a real life BK-Launch MAKE IT space that serves as an incubator for exceptional ideas.
