Researchers and startups speed date with potential co-founders
UtrechtInc and Climate-KIC select innovations with market potential. These could be startups and projects from pioneers, researchers or major research institutes and universities. They are all still missing (co-)entrepreneurs! With this event we bring both parties together to get acquainted and potentially form a team. Our shared objective is to transform prototypes, publications or scientific research into market ready business concepts.
Research, innovative projects and startups
If you’re a scientist, you publish your research. Do you want to make a positive impact on society with an application of this research? Maybe you’d like to be an entrepreneur yourself, or you’re looking for an initiator to bring your product to the market? At our MYC-event you can informally meet with people that (with you) want to create successful companies. UtrechtInc is the startup incubator for Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht and is organizing this event for these knowlege institutions, but also for propositions from RIVM and TNO. IT startups in Health, Education and Climate can also register to speed date with talent they’re still missing in their teams.
Do you have a background in Business Development, Sales, Finance, Operations, IT or Marketing? Are you looking for innovative concepts or promising (future) startups? Want to contribute your knowledge, network or skills, for example as a CFO or CTO? Join us on April 11, meet some ingenious propositions and maybe you’ll find a match as a complementary team member!
Prior to April 11, we’ll inform you about the registrations via our newsletter and UtrechtInc’s Netwerkapp. During the event the startups and researchers present their propositions with their own stand in an informal market. Prospective co-founders walk around to scout for interesting projects. In short sessions they will discover whether there is a match as a complementary team member. Additionally the event has individual matchmakers, speed dates and plenary pitches to help both parties to get acquainted.
After April 11 you’ll meet with your match to set up a cooperation agreement. UtrechtInc and Climate-KIC can support you in doing that. We offer support for startups with proven acceleration programs, funding, office facilities and a large network of mentors, peers and talent. In the startup programs teams focus on quickly developing a scalable business model, paying customers and a working product.
