Hi Jeftha, can you tell me about your startup?
My name is Jeftha Hempel, founder of App4Talent
What challenge would you like to solve? What is your solution?
At the moment, the practical assignments and practical experience of students and employees are insufficiently stored and made visible to others. When this is the case, this happens in an often not practical way. In addition, assignments and experiences can not, or hardly, be provided with direct feedback. The result is that as a teacher/supervisor you have insufficient insight into the development of your students and/or employees. App4Talent ensures that practical assignments and experiences can be collected in a practical and user-friendly way and made visible to others. This way, students/employees can build their portfolio with the skills they possess. Teachers and supervisors can give remote feedback and monitor where the student/employee is in his development.

It is a very valuable program. The training sessions, contacts with your mentor and the conversations with other startups provide a lot of valuable information. You also grow your network with this programme.
