The TU Delft alumni Jantien Herfst and Mei Ling Tan (both from TPM) have won the Viva400 Award in the category of fashion. In 2012, the two graduates established House of Einstein, a clothing formula for men who do not like to shop. In two years, the rapidly growing start-up has expanded to more than 1000 customers and profits in the thousands. House of Einstein offers boxes containing hand-selected outfits. Following a Skype interview with the customer, a personal Outfitter starts to work. Jantien and Ling began the company immediately after completing their studies at TU Delft. Their mission is to become a fashion-tech company that combines the latest technology with personal service.
According to the monthly magazine Opzij, Anka Mulder, Executive Board vice-president for Education, is one of the most powerful women in the field of education and science. In last month’s issue, the feminist monthly magazine presented a list of 100 powerful women in all areas of society, including sports, justice, public administration, politics, media, charitable organisations, culture, business and health care. Mulder was listed in fifth place for the category of education and science. In first place was Louise Gunning of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and the University of Amsterdam.
