Meet six new startups at UtrechtInc

Six new teams at startup incubator UtrechtInc just began a four-month journey to create a scalable business model, acquire paying customers, hire a complementary team and build a working product. With the addition of these six new startups, the incubator counts a total of 30 startups under one roof. Successful ‘graduate’ companies include ViriCiti, The Hyve and StuComm. (Dutch version)

Who are the new six? Closure, Goings-On, Campfire, Marcopolobot, Perfect Place and PostMe. During the two-week Kick Off the startups got straight to work. Ira de Jong, one of the new entrepreneurs from PostMe: “I already feel like our company is growing just by being here in the building.”

Chantal van der Velde from Closure continues: “We’re a startup built on expertise, but as an entrepreneur you need to learn to be somewhat of an expert at everything. UtrechtInc allows you to develop that knowledge and those skills. It’s an inspiring environment full of incredibly helpful people.”

Progress

On UtrechtInc Demo Day - January 18 2018 - the six new startups will present their progress. If the startup has proven successful, the team will be granted access to startup capital and the follow-up incubator program at UtrechtInc.
