On Friday June 10, 2016 Corporate Venturing Network (CVN) organized the meeting ‘Meeting the Hub’ at Novio Tech Campus in close cooperation with SMB Life Sciences and Health Valley. Regional hubs are an important stakeholder in the joint creation of successful ecosystems and the objective of this CVN meeting was to get a better understanding of how corporates, startups and hubs can join forces and strengthen each other. 40 participants learned about the healthtech and lifescience ecosystem and its players at Novio Tech Campus. Several stakeholders pitched their view followed by interactive round table discussions.
CVN is an informal network of senior representatives, sharing their best practices, developing mutual new business opportunities, establishing an open innovation ecosystem and encourage entrepreneurship.
Members of CVN are (R&D intensive) companies from the Netherlands (e.g. Philips, DSM,ASML, Fuji Healtcare) and neighbouring countries active in corporate venturing and open innovation.
