In Inqubator Leeuwarden we focus on helping start-up companies to firmly establish their business and maximize their growth over a maximum period of three years. Inqubator does this for a very varied group of people: student entrepreneurs, techno start-ups, unemployed persons, etc.
(Pre) start-up companies have to find their way in a new and unknown world called entrepreneurship. Incubator Leeuwarden helps them to find their way. Inqubator Leeuwarden strongly believes that this can best be done by showing the way and letting the start-ups walk the path themselves, rather than doing it for them. This is key in the philosophy of Inqubator Leeuwarden. Entrepreneurs need to take risk, find out their uniqueness and their weaknesses in order to survive in today’s competitive market. We pay strong attention to both their personal development and development of the business idea, and the connection between these two sides. However, by sharing knowledge with fellow start-up entrepreneurs, taking Masterclasses of successful established entrepreneurs and receiving training on specific challenging subjects (e.g. finances, employee management, business entities and taxes), the successful establishment of a business is achievable. Besides facilitating in knowledge sharing, organising Masterclasses and trainings, Inqubator Leeuwarden acts up as a mentor. Within Inqubator Leeuwarden, start-up companies discuss their day-to-day business and future strategy and ambitions on a regular basis.
