Early real-world testing brings important innovative solutions to market faster. Nine out of ten innovations fail. Often because a prototype is insufficiently tested before it goes to market. This costs entrepreneurs a lot of time, money and energy.

In the meantime, research over the past four decades has shown that startups that are co-founded by a team are more successful. Innofest, YES!Delft, and Erasmus Center for Entrepreneurship are joining forces to hold Co-Lab to help starting entrepreneurs find that new member of their dream team to help them reach the top!

Two startups will also get the opportunity to test their sustainable innovation at the biggest showcase festival in Europe: Eurosonic Noorderslag (ESNS) from 18 to 21 January 2023 in Groningen. The tests are made possible by Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland
