Tech incubator YES!Delft The Hague joins forces with innovation hub The Hague Tech. As one ecosystem, the companies will collaborate on their combined mission: facilitate entrepreneurs in their growth and stimulate digital innovation.
For YES!Delft the move is an important step: “At YES!Delft The Hague, we have three main activities. Obviously, we support ambitious and promising tech startups to accelerate the development of their digital innovations. Next to this, we also support corporates in their innovation journey. And for the Public sector, we are rolling out an ambitious GovTech program to accelerate digital innovations in this domain. This resonates highly with The Hague Tech’s ambition and community. This is why we moved to their location. Together with our joining startups and the local ecosystem, we are confident to accelerate the broad adoption of innovative solutions’ Ras Lalmy, MD YES!Delft The Hague comments.
Olga Wielders, Co-founder of The Hague Tech is pleased with the move: “Together we can generate higher value and innovate faster. We ensure enrichment and a deepening of the program offered as part of the broad, innovative ecosystem. This program includes joint programs on artificial intelligence, diversity in tech, and GovTech; technologies designed for government purposes. It fits with our ambition to build a national GovTech hub. We build a community around these programs by offering a location, getting partners involved, and work together on different problems. Jointly we can work on strengthening the digital startup ecosystem in The Hague and the IT & Security Campus.”
Saskia Bruines, Alderman and Deputy Mayor of the municipality of The Hague, welcomes the collaboration: “The coming together of these two organizations is a great step in further strengthening The Hague ecosystem for innovative startups. The fact that they join forces will lead to an even stronger The Hague startup community.”
