WORLD OF WALAS PARTNERSHIP WITH STARTUP TWENTE

WORLD OF WALAS PROJECT ANNOUNCES STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP WITH STARTUP TWENTE.

Spinnerij Oosterveld, a World of Walas project in Enschede, NL has announced a collaboration with startup incubator, Startup Twente, to accelerate startups and early stage companies. In addition to Spinnerij Oosterveld, the incubator network consists of the Enschede Cee Cee community, Start! By Saxion, Novel-T, the Entrepreneur’s Lab of the ROC of Twente and the municipality of Enschede.

“We are trying to make it attractive for growing, innovative entrepreneurs. By offering them access to an incubator they will continue to thrive and hopefully continue to consider this region their home base. We hope to prevent them from ‘flying out’ to other cities, which of course is good for the local economy. The formula is already paying off, and we are seeing a number of Twente based companies grow to 25 people or more in a very short time.” said Peter Borkens, CCO of World of Walas.
