About

Incubase is a new and unique student incubator founded by the Student Union, Novel-T and the University of Twente.

About

The mission of Incubase is to facilitate and support entrepreneurial University of Twente students with their innovative business idea.

How it started

The University of Twente has a track record of 35 years of experience as an entrepreneurial university. Over 1000 startups/spin-offs were created out of the university among those companies like Booking.com, Takeaway.com, Scisports, Xsens, Codesandbox, and many more. The University of Twente placed their startup/business activities at Novel-T, the business unit of the university that helped already many startups and companies to create new business. The Student Union promotes the academic competencies and the well-being of students of the University of Twente.

The gym for startups

We distinguish with a business model that fits our startups: the “gym for entrepreneurship.” Just like in a gym, you come to Incubase to train. You have to build your startup to grow eventually. The enterprising students pay ten euros a month for a membership. Nothing more, nothing less. With this membership, the entrepreneurs can use the co-working space, the support of Novel-T and, for example, request subsidy advice from our partners Rabobank and PNO.

I’m behind the curtains...mainly. It might not be obvious but there’s a lot that goes into realising the value we want to realise with Incubase. I make sure you only get to see the finished product in front of the curtain.
