What is your background?
Through my studies in Science & Innovation Management at Utrecht University I was first involved with Climate-KIC Entrepreneurship. As an alumni student of the Education pillar I’ve been actively involved with supporting cleantech start-ups. I am passionate about the subject.

Why did you become a country lead?
The ClimateLaunchpad competition helps us reach out to, and support (future) entrepreneurs. I like to be part of a programme with real impact.

Why do you think this competition is so important?
You never know who will come up with the next brilliant climate idea. Organisations like Climate-KIC and the ClimateLaunchpad competition make a real difference.

How does your organisation support cleantech start-ups?
At Climate-KIC we support start-ups in our Accelerator programme. It’s the rock solid 18-month program where great ideas grow into great businesses.
