On Tuesday 18 December, Hans Hanssen comes to StartUp Nijmegen to share his story during the College Tour Nijmegen 2018!

College Tour is a recurring event organized by StartUp Nijmegen. Entrepreneurs are given the opportunity to interview an experienced entrepreneur presented by Raymond Janssen.

Experienced entrepreneur: Hans Hanssen

Hans Hanssen became head of the innovation department of Philips Venlo during a reorganization. This department grew into a successful company in medical technology, particularly the coating of medical devices. The company was sold later, Hans stayed there for 15 years as general manager, until his retirement in 2009. Because he had too much energy and ideas, together with Rob Tweehuysen, he built up several high-tech companies in Nijmegen. One of the most famous of these is NovioTech, alongside it has 10 other companies in the high-tech industry. His mission is to bring new technologies to the market, by scouting new developments, investing in them and finding entrepreneurs who are working on a project. In this way he bridges the gap between promising ideas and the market. So, a very inspiring entrepreneur with a lot of experience!
