Innofest & YES!Talents 2023 Co-Lab

Innofest, YES!Delft and Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship are joining forces! With this new collaboration two startups get the opportunity to test their sustainable innovation at the biggest showcase festival in Europe: Eurosonic Noorderslag (ESNS) from 18 to 21 January 2023.

Early real-world testing brings important innovative solutions to market faster. Nine out of ten innovations fail. Often because a prototype is insufficiently tested before it goes to market. This costs entrepreneurs a lot of time, money and energy. Innofest ensures that this step to the market is successful for more startups. We do this by helping entrepreneurs to design a successful test and connecting them to a test location.

These tests are made possible by: Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland.

Join our Co-Lab and find your co-founder or teammate!

There is a reason why people don’t climb Everest on their own. With a team, you can overcome obstacles that seem impossible just by yourself. Research has shown that startups that are co-founded by a team are more successful.

During ESNS, we organise a Co-Lab workshop on January 19 (10-12 am) where as a single founder, founding team, or entrepreneurial-minded person, you’ll get the tools and connections to find that new member of your dream team to help you reach the top!

The Co-Lab is a 2h workshop facilitated by YES!Delft, where we challenge you to collaborate with fellow entrepreneurs.

  • It is a workshop on business ideation and teamwork. A business idea or team is not required
  • Get the tools, knowledge and connections to find or become a co-founder or the newest team member
  • Network with like-minded people, entrepreneurs and startup founders
  • Engage and partake in the creative and inspirational environment of ESNS together with fellow entrepreneurs and startups.
  • Participation is free, but registration is necessary as we will link participants based on best potential matches, see the link below.

Free lunch is included afterwards at the Hideout of the MXT conference from 12.00-13.30
