Why is it good to work in a startup?

First of all, it is a unique experience to start working at a startup. Startups still have every opportunity to grow and that involves a lot of innovation and creativity. In addition, you learn a lot because you are often involved in different activities and you get a lot of responsibility. This probably gives you the right motivation because you have to make smart decisions to perform well for the startup. Because startups need to grow fast, you work in an innovative environment with a close and dynamic team. The growth of the startup also has an attractive share in your career path.

How do I choose a startup company?

It is important that you look at references from the founders of the startup. Here you look at work experience, previous successes, educational background, and more. In addition, it is important that you look at the composition of the team and whether the startup suits you. Interested to see what YES!Delft startups have to offer? Find them here.
