So what’s going on in your organisation? Are there any unresolved innovation issues with the potential to make a real difference?

100 challenges. 500 new relations. An impression.

Univé opted for co-creation

The online platform has already welcomed over 100 active corporations, and 7.500 enthusiastic and innovative entrepreneurs. Our participants work together to explore new business opportunities, with frequently successful outcomes.

Univé was seeking help to prevent chimney fires, for example. KVK Business Challenge put the company in touch with innovative, creative entrepreneurs. Univé then chose the 3 most suitable candidates, and co-created a unique solution tailored to its needs. One of the entrepeneurs, partner at Studio Mango, tells us more: ‘The first meeting is like a first date.’ 

GES 2019 immediately yields new collaborations

KVK Business Challenge played an active role at this year’s 2019 Global Entrepreneur Summit (GES) in The Hague. Since then, four partners have already decided on a collaboration with each other. ProRail, for example, plans on testing a solution to provide toilet facilities on or near the track for use during incidents. ASC plans to develop a solution for special surgical kits, which can be used in situations where a hospital is not available.
