28 juni 2012 | Hate your university food? Let’s change that. Student pioneers, Maaike Reuver and Charlotte van Leeuwen, from YES WE CANTEEN are nominated for the top 25 under 25 entrepreneurship competition. Voting is open now.

Things just don’t change. That is the feeling you can get whenstudying at a Dutch university. The same big lecture halls, thesame old PowerPoint presentations teachers flip through every yearand during lunch break: the same food that some major universitycaterer puts on your plate.

Maaike Reuver and Charlotte van Leeuwen, both participants inthe Learning Lab, broke this cycle. Creating YES WE CANTEEN, these two students took chargeof one of the major canteens of the University of Amsterdam givinglocal entrepreneurs the chance to offer their products.

Now, both pioneers joined the top 25 under 25 competition of theDutch magazine Sprout. 25 projects created by entrepreneurs youngerthan 25 years old participate. To vote, please click here.

Originally, YES WE CANTEEN’s catering concept was inspired byfood courts as they are popular at Asian and Americanuniversities.  This stands in stark contrast to the currentone-caterer-one-choice approach adopted by most Dutchuniversities.
