Quality over quantity
Egbert Ottevanger, co-founder of World Startup Factory: “It’s great to see that our aim of quality over quantity worked out well for Impact Accelerator #3. We have on-boarded ten very interesting startups. It’s also remarkable that more and more startups approach us for support and advice outside the official application period. We know that startups aren’t seasonal fruits; they need support all the time, the whole year long. Therefore, we have recently developed a so-called fast track program.”
Meaningful and inspiring companies
It is all about meaningful and inspiring companies, according to Brian Gharibaan, founder of The Hague Tech: “The Hague is Impact City, an environment where entrepreneurs, government, and talent support each other to build meaningful and inspiring companies. When I want to discuss and launch great ideas, it’s here where I feel home and it’s here where I find my strong partners.”
