StartupDelta Innovation Hubs Launch How to Get There Summit

18 May 2016
Author: HSD Foundation

HSD partner StartupDelta organises a new edition of the How to Get There Summit. Innovative minds of the Netherlands come together in The Hague this year for this up and coming summit. This innovation event mobilises corporates, startups and innovation hubs to innovate faster together as a ‘single hub’. The How To Get There Summit was initiated as part of StartupDelta by Neelie Kroes and minister Kamp and is organised by the innovation hubs of the Netherlands. The Hague Security Delta is part of the hubs. The How To Get There Summit will take place in The Hague during the Global Entrepreneurship Week on November 17th 2016.


Innovating faster together

The Netherlands belongs to the top of innovation ecosystems worldwide.  An inventory by Financieel Dagblad (Dutch newspaper) shows that more than 220 initiatives and collaborations are developing innovation hotspots in the Netherlands. Professor Frank van Oort of the Erasmus University Rotterdam notes however that many of those initiatives are too small to be able to compete at international level. To counter increased fragmentation, the innovation hubs of StartupDelta jointly organise the How To Get There (HTGT) Summit on 17 November 2016. During the HTGT Summit corporates, startups and innovation hubs work together as a ‘single hub’ to innovate faster together. Participants of the HTGT Summit can see, feel, hear, and sometimes even taste what the innovation ecosystem of the Netherlands has to offer. All innovation hubs, from Brainport Eindhoven to StartupAmsterdam and from Kennispark Twente to The Hague Impact City, showcase their facilities en share their knowledge and expertise. Dutch corporates across sectors share their expertise, success stories and brilliant failures. Startups join in the Get in The Ring competition to do business with investors, corporates and fellow entrepreneurs.
