Startup Corner launch: connecting startups & the industry
MRDH, YES!Delft and StartupDelta launch a one stop shop for tech startups
DELFT, May 15 2018 – Finding your way in the entrepreneurial ecosystem can be a tricky thing for startups. You need coaches, investors, team members, launching customers and industry experts. Entrepreneurs sometimes experience major barriers when getting in touch with big players. They might, for instance, not have the necessary introductions or easy access to startup experts at these parties. The Metropolitan Region Rotterdam The Hague (MRDH), StartupDelta and YES!Delft came up with a solution, today they launch Startup Corner: a one stop shop for tech startup support, connecting all experts with startups in one database.
Startup Corner offers supporters for all startup building blocks – from finance to HR to pilot projects. The platform connects you to all kinds of tech experts, enabling low-key and easy accessible advice, services and collaborations. Our service and innovation partners offer startup-friendly services and launching customer facilities and include partners like EY, Rabobank, Ugoo, PNO, Prorail and fieldlabs.
Sunny de Roo, founder of Startup Corner: “In addition, it’s a peer-to-peer community. You’re able to share challenges with startups and the industry, to brainstorm with and support each other. On top of that, partners can invite you to unique events, including exclusive networking and master classes with fellow startups and companies.”
Ferrie Förster, alderman in the city of Delft: ”With the support of Startup Corner, tech startups have access to all the knowledge available within the region of Rotterdam and The Hague. It also establishes a link between the smart industry field labs in the region, so they can share their knowledge and facilities with startups.”
Nils Beers, Director StartupDelta: “There are many startups that are not yet active within an incubator, who have left an accelerator program, don’t want to come to the center of the Netherlands or can’t grow on their own, but still need support. Therefore, it is great that Startup Corner has been founded to support everyone with big ambitions in the best way possible.”
Evert Jaap Lugt, managing director of YES!Delft: “We want to digitize the Dutch ecosystem by giving tech startups, the industry and service partners access to a single point of contact. By initiating Startup Corner, we try to make networking and connecting to industry experts more efficient and approachable. Hereby we enable startups to accelerate and grow faster.”
Startup Corner is now live and available for all tech startups in The Netherlands. Use the online platform and meet in person at YES!Delft or CIC Rotterdam.
