We are very pleased to announce that StartUp Nijmegen, Radboud University Nijmegen, Radboud Medical Center, Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen (HAN) ánd ROC Nijmegen officially signed a collaboration agreement to jointly support student- as well as PhD-entrepreneurs.
Representing more than 55.000 students, the educational institutions in Nijmegen are a massive and critical source for innovation and entrepreneurship. All institutions already offer entrepreneurial support programs tailored to the needs of their students, for example Mercator Launch (RU) and Young in Business (HAN). Working together will allow us to use each other’s strengths, facilities and networks to the fullest potential, thereby offering a complete and complementary support structure to young entrepreneurs from both technical and non-technical backgrounds. Together we can offer the future entrepreneurs of Nijmegen access to educational courses, practical workshops, informative meetups, business experts, experienced mentors, prototyping facilities and funds in all types of industries.
This unique collaboration will strengthen our regional capacity to support entrepreneurs, increase the startup’s chances of success and help them grow into a sustainable businesses that will boost the local economy.
We are looking forward to an entrepreneurial year with this successful collaboration!
