JADS Playground

Jheronimus Academy of Data Science's Start Up Community! Building Data-Driven Business together!

About the JADS Playground
JADS Playground's main purpose is to help aspiring entrepreneurs starting their businesses with a link to Data Science. The JADS Playground is based in Jheronimus Academy of Data Science, where the joint master Data Science and Entrepreneurship of Tilburg University and the Eindhoven University of Technology is hosted. This inherently brings the JADS community all the ingredients for successful new businesses, the expertise of entrepreneurship and data science from two leading universities is always readily available and there is a growing basis of entrepreneurial-minded data science talents. JADS Playground aims to be the connector between these key ingredients and offers a platform to experiment, learn and develop.


Our main aim is crossing the bridges between science and practice in the domain of Data Science, striving to have a large and positive impact on society. We are driven by a curiosity and desire to know.
We believe people are making the difference, therefore the entrepreneurs are central to all our activities. With our work, we intend to help aspiring entrepreneurs from the ideation phase towards scaling their business. 
We provide programs supporting the entrepreneurial journey in a playful way. We design, experiment and learn, again and again. We collaborate with like-minded people and make things happen!
