Why a partnership with VU Entrepreneurship & Impact?

Globally, we commit to 3 core values: Entrepreneurship, Excellence and Empathy. In the Netherlands we feel most comfortable with ‘Entrepreneurship’. Entrepreneurship is in our DNA. We understand the challenges of entrepreneurs and put that into practice every day in our collaborations with large companies, startups and universities. A collaboration with the VU – where entrepreneurship is also central to its core values – is therefore a very logical one. We share the ambition to translate the ideas and creativity of students into successful businesses and the passion to challenge and guide budding entrepreneurs on their way to success. And finally, we share the same location – the VU StartHub and our office are less than 500 meters from each other.
