Where does it take place?

More and more big companies in The Netherlands are looking for startup methods to develop innovations fast and introduce them to the market. To help them with that, Info Support opened an Innovation Lab in Startup Village in Amsterdam. In this lab a bridge is built between the worlds of corporates, startups and science. Innovation Lab sprouted from a partnership between Info Support and Startup Village in Amsterdam; a community work environment at the Amsterdam Science Park for innovative high tech and science based startups. The goal of Startup Village is to create a place for young entrepreneurs with innovative ideas and to coach them while starting up their own business. The Amsterdam Science Park can host about 30 startups in total and one hundred fifty workplaces.
