BeStart brings together entrepreneurs, creative students and innovators in the field of clean technology. It is a regional initiative with national and European connections. Since the start in 2016 BeStart established a community of creative talent to launch start-ups and to design new high-quality technologies and products. Every year a maximum of 12 start-ups will be selected for an “accelerator” process, providing them with support to allow their company to grow faster. The program consists of three phases: BeStart Think, BeStart Check and BeStart Grow. During BeStart Think, companies get a well-thought-out, coherent image of their business. They know precisely what their client’s problem is and how their solution addresses it. BeStart Check is about validation. Companies will validate their product in close cooperation with customers. Finally, BeStart Grow is about selling products more efficiently and improving fund acquisition.
In 2013, 90 entrepreneurs from Friesland, the Netherlands, met to seek entrepreneurship opportunities. Ultimately, this resulted in, among other things, BeStart. Their goal was to further develop the attractive north of the Netherlands as an innovative, enterprising region with (young) entrepreneurs who can make a difference. Their focus is now on clean technology and circular economy. BeStart is their flagship initiative related to cleantech start-ups. The incubator has a broad support network, from both the R&D and innovation and financial sides.
The parties that package their activities through the BeStart accelerator are:
