Over 25 years of experience

The VentureLab concept is grounded on more than 25 years of practical and research experience in business development support. The key to launching a company on the market as effectively as possible is not only the idea, but also all the entrepreneurial competences that form the basis of a successful business operation.

To move from idea (opportunity recognition) to business model (opportunity preparation), to running a fast growing, technology-based business (opportunity exploitation), many steps are required. These steps are impossible for one person to envisage, coordinate and take. Building a business, let alone a fast growing company, is teamwork.

Our approach jump-starts and provides sustainable growth for long-standing companies and young businesses which aim to grow further and more rapidly. Our clients are -mostly- technology and education based start-ups and established firms that want to accelerate their business growth.


In VentureLab you get regular trainings, support network and matching expert and process coaches.

I realized that I would need more than my technical background alone in order to succeed in business. With the support of VentureLab Twente, I was able to fine tune the business concept for Trade-Base from marketing and strategy perspective.
