Within this theme, success factors of starting entrepreneurs (skills, markets and facilities, from venture capital to incubators) are being researched.
The chance of success for starters is increased with a greater understanding of the success factors. In addition, we are researching how social organisations can develop an entrepreneurial attitude. Due to the economy’s necessity for renewal, entrepreneurship is on the agenda in Rotterdam. The strategic theme ‘New Business’ of the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences is included in this research. We are monitoring the start-ups in the Incubator Academy and in doing so support their success and the Incubator Programme. This theme links directly to ‘Entrepreneurship’ theme of the Roadmap Next Economy.
