In 2014 we, and our partner Next2Company, launched together with Dutch mortgage company Obvion (an affiliate Company of Rabobank) and the Dutch association for the construction industry Bouwend Nederland, a cross sector innovation program for start-up concepts.
The Innovation Boost program aims for next generation solutions for the modern needs of living, concepts for more customer intimacy and sustainable business concepts on energy and material usage. The program’s first focus is to enable scale up cross sector innovations and creation of new business models. Starting with an open call for concepts an eligible cohort of 10 promising concepts is selected and presented on a vibrant Innovation Boostcamp day. The cohort received support on business modelling, customer/ stakeholder validation and financial structuring and marketing/ communications and storytelling. The winners of the Innovation Boostcamp are Heijmans One, WoonConnect, Lynepave and the e-wijk concept. See the e-vitrine of the Innovation Boost program for more info on the concepts.
