'It all started in 2010 with a small team on the Campus and now we've grown towards a full operational ecosystem based in HTC 31. Ten years later, with the help of our Benelux members from Universities, Research Technology Partners and Industry, EIT Digital has evolved into its current mature state. The Campus provides the perfect network to turn a starting institute with great potential into and foster innovation & entrepreneurship in Europe.
With our institute we build a bridge between education, innovation and entrepreneurship. In this knowledge triangle we stimulate cross-pollination and educate talents, invest in start-ups and help scale-ups with their acceleration. With our open office space, we stimulate the collaboration between our educated talents and the scale-ups that are created and invested in by EIT Digital. Mission accomplished.
We consider ourselves as a servant leader. Disruptive innovation has to be orchestrated, that’s where we come in. We connect the right people at the right time and that’s when great things happen. The Campus proves to be a fertile soil to connect between our members and talents. EIT Digital can facilitate, but people have to execute the process of innovation themselves.'
