Mentors & Partners

Support whenever you need it

The leadmentors of the programme will guide you during the whole programme. They will measure progress weekly and help you when needed. At the beginning of the programme there will be a matching between startups and mentors.


Lindy Hensen I love accelerating innovation at startups and corporates. My focus is on innovations that relate to industrial challenges in food, materials and energy. I help startups to design their business amongst others by coaching and actively connecting them to my network at corporates. The goal: to find a scalable business model that is able to bring sustainable results!

Tom Hallowes I work hard at getting under the skin of new companies so they can quickly realise their potential, what the market has to offer and how they can grow both nationally and internationally. I work hard at making sure the internal dynamic is right from the startup of the business through to succession.

Edouard Dopper My strength lies in finding and creating focus for startup teams with the help of my Agile and Lean Startup toolbox. Turning vision into a real actionable roadmap. My passion is customer development, the art of understanding the customer.

Douwe Wester As a strategy & lean startup coach, I work with innovation teams and startups to improve their product and business model. To do this, we apply lean startup principles and break down big problems in small steps. I am especially passionate about turning vision and strategy into small experiments that provide actionable insights.
