We challenge you to take the next brave step and turn your innovative ideas into new business. We’re there to support you when you make this step through the Innovation Challenge Haaglanden.
During one evening (16.00 – 21.30) on the 21th of June pioneers will be guided through the different stages of the process of turning an idea into business with the help of several experts. This day is set up together with ABN AMRO, Chamber of Commerce, Syntens, ESA Business Incubation Centre and BViT. The Innovation Challenge is organized 4 times a year. This first event takes place in The Hague. The Innovation Challenge offers a ‘pressure cooker’ method, developed by XLX, to accelerate business model development around daring new ideas. This way the involved partners help to overcome typical challenges connected to bringing innovative ideas to the market.
What’s there to win and gain?
