Three pillars of Startup-Corner

Partners like EY, Rabobank, Ugoo, PNO, Prorail, and Fieldlabs can provide much-needed service for your startup to grow.
#2 Innovation challenges
Partners and industrial firms are able to share innovation challenges with startups. This helps established companies solve hard problems and scout the best available talent via competitive challenges.
#3 Unique events
Startups registered with Startup-Corner get access to unique events, including exclusive networking and master classes with fellow startups and companies.
“We want to digitalize the Dutch ecosystem by giving tech startups, the industry and service partners access to a single point of contact. By initiating Startup Corner, we try to make networking and connecting with industry experts more efficient and approachable. Hereby we enable startups to accelerate and grow faster,” said Evert Jaap Lugt, managing director of YES!Delft.
Coffee and an inspiring-private space for entrepreneurs
Other than its core services, Startup Corner offers two locations for entrepreneurs to meet partners and experts. The first is in Delft at YES!Delft and the second one in Rotterdam at CIC.
Entrepreneurs can use the spaces for a meeting free of charge and have a cup of coffee in an inspiring and private space to make the next move in their startup journey.
