Learning from leading entrepreneur and ID&T founder Duncan Stutterheim

From ID&T to Sensation and from the A’DAM Toren to the Westergasfabriek: Duncan Stutterheim is one of the most successful and inspiring Dutch entrepreneurs in the event and real estate industry. He visited Tio Amsterdam to give students an idea of what his life as a leading entrepreneur is like and talk about the highs and lows of his career. Duncan: ‘Being an entrepreneur isn’t always fun. I have lost millions at times. Being an entrepreneur is about taking risks, and sometimes they pay off, sometimes they don’t.’

Quotes from students

‘He is a real example to me. I lived on Ibiza for seventeen years and work in the events industry, so this lecture was very relevant to me as a person. Duncan is inspiring and has a lot of knowledge. I was even able to ask him some questions about my own situation. Yes, this evening was very valuable to me personally.’ – Hotel and Event Management student Jurij

‘It was very interesting to hear Duncan’s story, to hear how things can go in real life. I learned a lot and think I’ll be able to put some of his advice to good use. This was an inspiring evening!’ – Hotel and Event Management student Adriënne
