StartupDelta Summit 2018

Rabobank is co-sponsoring the StartupDelta Summit 2018. The event that tells you all you need to know about start-up ecosystems in the Netherlands, how they work and how to fund them. Read on for news about the summit and Rabobank’s sponsor role.

This go-to event for the Dutch start-up ecosystem will take place at the Kleefse Waard Business Park in Arnhem on 19 April. Prins Constantijn of the Netherlands and the state secretary for Economic Affairs and Climate Mona Keijzer will officially open the StartupDelta Summit 2018 at 14.00h, making the province of Gelderland the place to be for anyone with a passion for building the future of the Netherlands. Helping innovation to seed in future fertile ground. Making connections and making innovation tangible.

Which is all wonderful of course. But what exactly is our role as a sponsor of the event? For a start, we have a say what’s on the programme. And we’ll be doing a lot more on the day.

Why are we sponsoring StartupDelta Summit?

Rabobank has been a partner of StartUpDelta for some years now. Our idea is to use this partnership to support Dutch start-ups at more than 60 locations with our knowledge, network, accommodation, and sometimes finance. We believe that start-ups are the growth engine of the Dutch economy and act as an early indicator in sectors for our other commercial clients.

We will also have an exhibition stand at the StartupDelta Summit. On the stand we will show our commitment to the regions and to accelerator programmes including Utrecht Inc., BrightLands, YesDelft!, Port XL, BRISKR and Healthub.

Bart Leurs, Rabobank’s Chief Digital Transformation Officer, will present his ideas on innovation and digitalisation at Rabobank to a specially invited audience. He will tell our guests all about Moonshots, the Rabobank’s start-ups and our DTO ambitions. At this same event Marcel Gerritsen, responsible for Strategy and Innovation for commercial clients, will speak about the impact of innovation and digitalisation on Rabobank’s customers.
