Abstract

Introduction
Within the Entrepreneurship program at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, there are a number of student start-ups that are developing inclusive, sustainable, and innovative solutions. We noticed that, during this process, they need to access certain facilities to develop a proof of concept or minimal viable product. When student start-ups tried to access facilities themselves, they found insufficient information about accessing facilities and contact persons. As Hui & Gerber (2017) stated that accessible facilities like a makerspace have a positive impact on the number of students who are embarking on the venture of a new business. Halbinger, (2020) states that there needs to be more research about university makerspaces in relation to the facilitation of student-entrepreneurship.
