Nyenrode New Business Regatta 2012
A new route for expertise and talent
On Saturday April 28th, after months of preparation and practice, the Nyenrode New Business Regatta finally took off! In the wee hours, ten boats left the starting point at NEMO, Amsterdam, for a 40 km race to Breukelen. In total, 200 participants joined the regatta and a team of more than 30 students of Nyenrode New Business School made everything run smoothly. Stormy weather caused thrilling and sometimes difficult circumstances for the participants, but all in all it was a great event. The race was won by Gang Is Alles. The results, as well as the pictures, can be found online. See you next year?
Today’s experts and tomorrow’s talent will meet in 2012 in a unique event that revolves around cooperation and exchanges, tradition and progress: the New Business Regatta!
On 28 April 2012, this special race for rowing boats (sloepen) will take place along the Amsterdam-Breukelen route. Students, entrepreneurs, Nyenrode alumni and business employees will row down the canals, through a 45 km historic trade route.
The New Business Regatta is characterized by the merge of two schools: Nyenrode Business University and New Business School Amsterdam. These two extraordinary private institutions are joining forces and celebrating this momentous occasion with an athletic event that brings different generations of entrepreneurs together.
The New Business Regatta gives participants the opportunity to make valuable contacts, allowing entrepreneurs and students to meet and interact in a dynamic setting, exchange ideas and gain knowledge. The regatta starts in the center of Amsterdam and ends at the castle of Nyenrode Business Universiteit, where the closing party will take place.
Companies (with their customers), fraternities, clubs and groups of friends who want to be part of this unique event are welcome to sign up; participants without a boat of their own can join as well. For € 1.500, - per boat (including access to the closing celebration), parties can register with ten participants per boat who will be linked to eleven professional rowers.

Nyenrode is the only private university in the Netherlands. In 1946, captains of industry from leading Dutch corporations as KLM, Shell, Unilever, Philips and Akzo, took the initiative to start an institute where an action-inclined, internationally focused generation of new business leaders would be educated. Nyenrode’s ambition is to deepen the knowledge of our internationally oriented, carefully selected students towards sustainable leaders, robust accountants and agile and creative entrepreneurs. For business, by business has been our motto from the day our institute was established. It still defines the university and assures that practical relevance is of main importance to our faculty.
Nyenrode New Business School opened in 2006, in cooperation with the University of Westminster, and offers an international Bachelor degree in New Business. Both academic development and professional development are central to the programme: it represents the third path in higher education in the Netherlands that allows students to develop themselves into creative and responsible business men and women. Projects in India, Ethiopia and China and a semester in London contribute to the student’s international ambitions.
