The Academic Business Club (ABC) was founded in 2004 as an initiative of Prof. Drs. Joop G. Vianen and students of Tilburg University out of the need to develop in the field of entrepreneurship. The ABC is a networking organization for entrepreneurial students. It is their mission to inspire students in the field of entrepreneurship. They do this through ABC Nights, ABC Talks and ABC Visits. Through presentations by student entrepreneurs, speakers from the business world, informal get-togethers, brainstorm sessions and network meetings, problems are solved, questions are answered and doors are opened that might otherwise have remained closed.
