Discover our current entrepreneur campaign

Entrepreneurs don’t ask: why? They ask: why not? Speaking as one entrepreneur to another, we know what it means to put it on the line. What it means to be an entrepreneur. Discover amazing projects below and ask yourself: why not?

Heart tissue from a 3D printer.

The fact that prosthetics can be produced using a 3D printer is no longer anything new. But this printing process is now being used for other purposes in medicine. Bioprinting refers to a 3D printing process for organic substances that's revolutionizing medicine. It's already possible to print human heart tissue, taking us one step closer to the 3D printing of a whole heart. Are you also moving into new areas? Why not.


Out of the ocean. Into the entrepreneurial world.

The pollution of the world’s oceans is an enormous problem that society needs to face. However, problems are also opportunities for entrepreneurs. Rather than producing more waste, waste can be removed from the ocean and used again to make new products. Sneakers are already being made from waste – and there are a number of other possible uses. Unfortunately, there’s more than enough waste in the ocean. Will you make something of it? Why not.


Insects on your plate.

We have long known that insects can be eaten. Now the market is really heating up. For example, noodles are now being made from insect flour and burger patties from mealworms and crickets. But this, too, is just the beginning, and the possibilities are endless. Globally there are some 2,000 edible insects that are nutritious and – hopefully – tasty too. Will you start the next big food trend? Why not. 


Mushrooms in packaging? Mushrooms as packaging.

The growth of e-​commerce has increased the amount of packaging waste. So forward-​looking alternatives are needed. One of these alternatives may sound strange now, but it has a lot of potential: fungal roots are being used to create stable material as part of a sustainable process. The material is being used for packaging and insulation. Are you starting your own trend? Why not.


There’s always room for more innovation.

Clever drone systems and innovative technology are not just for entertainment. Drones are increasingly used in vital situations. For example, to help firefighters make an initial assessment of a fire from the air. A drone with a special camera system has been developed for this purpose. And there’s still a lot more potential, especially in advanced business areas. Will you take advantage of this potential? Why not.


From compost to stronger concrete.

Carrots are not just good for our eyesight – even concrete can be made more stable using leftover from root vegetables such as carrots or sugar beet. Root vegetable fibers are added to cement, thereby increasing the proportion of calcium silicate hydrate, which is responsible for the strength of the concrete. Are you also exploring new approaches? Why not. 

A non-obligation consultation? Why not.
