Thyne Scholte is a University Innovation Fellow at the University of Twente (UT). He is currently working as a Data Scientist at AFKLM Cargo where he uses data to optimise process within the business. In the Fall of 2022 he plans to start his Masters at Erasmus University in Business Analytics while still working for KLM Partime.
Thyne was born in Amsterdam but lived his entire life abroad in Yemen, Rwanda, and Cameroon. This has shaped who he is today and his ultimate goal is to one day move back and use his expertise to help businesses compete with the western world. At the University of Twente Thyne majoring in Artificial Intelligence and Entrepreneurship. This stems from his interest in anything technology related. However what Thyne remember most from his studies at the University of Twente is the activities and societies he participated in next to his study. Next to UIF he was part of the Dutch Student Investment Fund where as the Deal-Flow director he invested 50,000 Euro into prop-tech startup Clairify, which has since gotten half million seed funding a couple months after.
As a University Innovation Fellow, Thyne's first project was improving the UT Campus App. The app was initially built just to welcome students to the UT. Thyne had the vision to create am app that would be the central hub for events on campus. Currently, all events are spread out over multiple different sources. Creating one place where all of these events are housed would possibly bring a larger sense of community to the campus at the UT. With the push and student input, Thyne added to the project a new app is currently in development.
Next to that Thyne took on the role of Financial Coordinator or the UIF Twente. With that role, he strategises on how best to divide the funds to make the largest impact on Campus. With that role, he is also part of the coordinating team and its responsibility to continue to look for partners with similar goals to increase the presence and image of UIF in Twente.
As part of UIF Twente Thyne organised the UIF European Meetup in multiple different editions from a free fully online 24-hour meetup, a one week Leaderships of Innovation course, and hopefully in 2022 a physical meetup inviting fellows from all over the world.
