Our mission is to address the challenge of climate change by means of scientific research that is aimed at creating comprehensive and applicable insights on clean-tech entrepreneurship, innovation and education. In order to do so, the ‘Start-up insights’ initiative actively conducts scientific research and gathers useful results from previous studies. Thereby, we apply a wide scope of the subject matter, ranging from ‘what makes entrepreneurial ecosystems work?’ to start-up strategies and best practice models for supporting facilities.

By means of new insights in these subjects, we aim to support those who aim to transform their ideas into successful and world changing start-ups or aim to support (clean-tech) entrepreneurship.

For who?

Our results are open and shared with the rest of the world, thereby providing value for entrepreneurs, policy makers, clean-tech investors, supporting organizations and fellow researchers.
