YES!Delft among the top 5 business incubators in the world

Tech incubator YES!Delft has, again, secured a spot in the top 5 of the UBI Global ranking of the world’s best university incubators. YES!Delft sees this as recognition for the excellent work it does for startups and scaleups. Earlier this year, YES!Delft introduced the incubator 4.0: a new concept to provide startups with everything they need in their lifecycle.

 

The new YES!Delft incubator 4.0 supports tech startups in all phases of their business and consists of four parts. Through YES!Talents entrepreneurs find a co-founder or talented team members. For suitable financing and advice to keep their startup financially healthy, they can use the YES!Funded service. WithYES!Programs YES!Delft also offers customised expertise and knowledge from experts and practitioners in areas such as market validation, sales, corporate finance, marketing, intellectual property and personal and professional development. Finally, the incubator 4.0 programme offers access to the YES!Delft ecosystem consisting of corporate partners, fieldlabs, investors and launching customers.

 

Evert Jaap Lugt, Managing Director at YES!Delft is excited about the incubator 4.0 concept: “This new development is in line with our mission to build an ecosystem that allows tech startups to become the leading companies of the future. Our growing network of companies that are joining that ecosystem is an important part of the development.”

 

 

In addition to the incubator 4.0, YES!Delft started a new initiative this year to solve problems of corporates by using startup and validation methodologies: Innocubes. Innocubes has everything it takes to enable companies to rapidly find innovative solutions to their challenges: from formulating an innovation strategy to developing and implementing customised technologies. The first collaborations between corporates and startups have been established. For example, Tata Steel has started a pilot with YES!Delft startup WarpVR. Together they develop virtual reality training courses that are able to train groups of up to 2000 employees.

 

Lugt: “Innocubes offers tech startups a unique way to test their technology on a large scale in real life. By continuing our development, we keep our quality high. This spot in the top 5 of the UBI Global ranking is a clear international recognition of that quality.”

 

UBI Global is a Swedish-based intelligence company and community, known for high-quality intelligence, assessment and mapping of business incubation. The top lists of business incubators as assessed in their World Benchmark Study 2019-2020 were released at the World Incubation Summit in Qatar.

EIT Health Validation Lab

For 10 medtech startups, the EIT Health Validation Lab is over and the journey begins

The fifth edition of the EIT Health Validation Lab came to an end for 10 startups at YES!Delft this week. The Pitch Day marked the close of the two-month program and brought a number of highlights with it. The event, which welcomed more than 100 guests, gave a platform to all participating startups to pitch their business idea in front of a jury, with KroniKare emerging as the big winner and both Slam Ortho and VitalFlap as the runners-up. 

Over the course of eight weeks, the medtech startups got the opportunity to travel across the Netherlands and Europe to validate their business case. Meeting up with experts at leading universities, healthcare companies and hospitals such as Reinier de Graff in Delft, Haaglanden MC in The Hague, HealthValley Nijmegen and the Leiden Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (PLNT), they tested the market potential of their ideas.

Kronikare, the winner of this edition, is a startup developing a wound scanner that uses AI to automate the process of wound assessment to just 30 seconds. By providing a real-time solution, the team hopes to give clinicians more time and less effort to improve their work. 

“It is brilliant how much the pitches improved since I saw the startups in our hospital just a few weeks ago,” said Marten van der Elst, one of the jury members, working at Reinier de Graaf. 

As the winner of the pitch competition, KroniKare will get a ticket to this year’s edition of the EIT Health Summit, which will take place on December 2-3 in Paris, France.

 

EIT Health Validation Lab is a partnership between YES!Delft and EIT Health and combines YES!Delft’s startup expertise with extensive knowledge and network of EIT Health.
