Cleantech Business Lounge / Meet your Co-Founder

24 Nov 2017

Venue: The Garage, H.R. Kruytgebouw, 1st floor Padualaan 8, 3584 CH Utrecht, the Netherlands.

It’s not unusual to find a start-up still in need of new talent, or a scientist who’s seeking an entrepreneur to kick-start a company from research. That’s why UtrechtInc & Climate-KIC are organizing a matchmaking event on 24 November 2017. The biannual Cleantech Business Lounge / MYC brings together (future) start-ups with complementary co-founders and team members. Let’s work together to bring these innovations to market!

Who are the (future) start-ups?

  • Start-ups based in the Utrecht region
  • Entrepreneurs with a business concept
  • Scientists with a business concept or commercial application
  • Research projects
  • Business propositions in cleantech
  • All start-ups are selected by UtrechtInc, Climate-KIC, UU, UMCU and HU


Who are they looking for?

  • Potential co-founders (to drive growth and development)
  • Professionals who want to work at a start-up
  • Young professionals with a little experience, seasoned professionals with lots of experience and everybody in between
  • People specialized in business development, sales, finance, operations, IT and marketing


Programme 24 November
Start-ups, scientists and concept owners will have a booth in our informal start-up marketplace. During the event, there are pre-organized “speed dating” sessions, plenary pitches and people from Climate-KIC & UtrechtInc team who will be actively matchmaking. We’ll provide a list of job roles and potential matches based on profiles. Potential co-founders and professionals will also have the chance to explore the marketplace booths and discover if there’s a match with one or more start-ups. After the sessions, there are networking drinks!
