While PITCCH (https://pitcch.eu/) is the first European-scale open innovation platform, it is not the first of its kind. Founded in 2016, TekDelta is a similar joint initiative for open innovation, aimed at increasing the amount of Dutch high-tech startups and scaleups, striving to create win-win-wins. TekDelta does this by offering startups access to potential business partners and by managing a startup hub network focusing on markets like industry 4.0, smart mobility and smart living. To that end, TekDelta regularly organizes webinars, knowledge sessions and, most of all, intensive curated matchmaking.
In this webinar, speakers Anita Lieverdink and Jacco Saaman will explain to us how they created a successful open innovation ecosystem, followed by a Q&A. What lessons can PITCCH learn from their journey?
