Corporate organisations have a strong network, a large market share, and access to financial means. But they’re also facing challenges. Innovative SMEs are known for their creativity, speed and novel ideas. It seems obvious that the two are the perfect match to generate innovative solutions and new business. To bring innovative entrepreneurs and large-scale corporates directly together, the Dutch Chamber of Commerce kicks-off the third online edition of the AddVentured Challenge on 16 April.


Amongst the challenges are Centraal Beheer/Achmea, that is looking for ways to make sure their customers will not become a victim of cyber crime 



On the online platform 'AddVentured' corporate organisations can pitch their challenges. Innovative SMEs can enter straight into a dialogue with the corporates about possible solutions, without having to put all their cards on the table. Ritha van de Ruit, advisor Chamber of Commerce: "Get talking, and who knows, you might find yourself sitting down with one of these corporates to embark on a process of co-creation. See if you have chemistry – if you find that there’s a spark, you could end up in a successful partnership. Perhaps you’ll even establish an entirely new business".
