MYC: team up for impact
Tue, April 11, 2017, 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM CEST
The matchmaking event for (future) startups and prospective co-founders; bringing innovations to the market and our society in complementary teams.
Prior to the MYC-event, UtrechtInc and Climate-KIC select several innovations with market potential. These could be (future) startups from pioneers, researchers or major research institutes and universities. They all are missing (co-)entrepreneurs. With this event we bring both parties together to get acquainted and potentially form a team. Our shared objective is to transform prototypes, publications or scientific research into market ready business concepts.
Who can join our matchmaking?
- in E-Health, E-Climate, E-Learning
- Scientific research with market potential (Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht)
- Innovation projects with market potential (RIVM, TNO and Climate-KIC)
- Cleantech innovations
- Looking for promising (future) startups, to join as a co-founder
- Specialised in, for example, Business Development, Sales, Finance, Operations, IT and Marketing
“It would be such a shame if beautiful ideas and valuable research don’t make an impact because winning teams are unable to find each other.” - Marcellien Breedveld, UtrechtInc
After your registration we will inform you about the business propositions and participants that applied. You can discover interesting leads and even get in touch with them through the 'Netwerkapp'.
During the event the startups and researchers present their propositions, with their own stand, at an informal market. Prospective co-founders tour the market and discover in brief sessions whether there is a match as a complementary team member. Additionally we use individual matchmakers, speed dates and plenary pitches to help both parties to get acquainted.
