InnovationLink, TKI Wind op Zee and NWEA launched the Offshore Wind Innovators community. The goal of this initiative is to accelerate the introduction of innovations into this growing and dynamic industry. Already 50 companies and organizations have indicated to support Offshore Wind Innovators.
While innovating, entrepreneurs face three major challenges: attracting funding, increasing visibility and finding a launching customer. Because so many entrepreneurs struggle with these issues, InnovatieLink, TKI Wind op Zee and NWEA have taken the Offshore Wind Innovators initiative.
The community is intended for both SME entrepreneurs and parties that can provide solutions to these challenges. Over 130 business partners – innovative SME entrepreneurs, big groups, investors, port companies, innovation hubs and media partners – have expressed their support for this community.
The activities that Offshore Wind Innovators will organize include Innovation Challenges, Investor Days and the SME Innovation Award.
