Increased innovation in sectors aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals is key to economic growth. These goals are already reshaping global markets and capital flows, bringing impact businesses to the spotlight and making them stand out in the competition. “The customer today is more curious about what impact a certain product makes on the outside world, what are the possible consequences of using it. It revolutionizes the approach to doing business. Startups that align solutions with global goals can be more competitive.” – says Gerrit Jan van ‘t Veen, co-founder World Startup Factory.
World Stratup Factory is interested in teams that try to improve the likes of health, sustainable environments, road safety, traffic management, circular economy, energy efficiency, occupancy mapping, digital security, critical infrastructure, well being, care systems (especially elderly) and e-health solutions. The program is developed in cooperation with local and international partners and hubs, including The City of The Hague, The Hague Security Delta, Health Valley Netherlands, SPIE, KPN and others.
