The entrepreneurial growth ecosystem of Eastern Netherlands, with its core at the University of Twente, needed to reposition itself in support of its mission. Novel-T’s objective is building an environment in which entrepreneurs can capture the available opportunities and become game changers. By connecting and activating talent, knowledge, capital, networks and infrastructure, it offers access to the right knowledge and (inter)national networks of researchers, entrepreneurs, investors and talent. Novel-T supports both start-ups and established entrepreneurs as they bring their high-tech innovations to life and make growth a reality.
The name relates to Innovation and the word New combined with the T of Twente, Technical, Tomorrow and Together. It was developed in an interactive process in which many stakeholders were actively involved.
