We help new companies to emerge, and existing companies to innovate

The innovation professionals at Novel-T like to get their teeth sunk into promising innovative business. Is your request better for one of our partners? Even then, we will help you find the best way in.

About us

Innovative companies shape the future. This not only applies to breakthrough start-ups, it applies to existing companies as well. Novel-T supports both with a full range of programs and services.

Due to our central role in the innovation ecosystem of Twente, we offer our target groups a direct line to knowledge, talent, capital and networks of other market leaders. This enables us to quickly provide them with the right information, instruments and inputs at the right time. We do this independently and as a non-profit organization, based on an assignment from our founders: University of Twente, Saxion University of Applied Sciences and the regional government.

Our founders

The strength of the region lies in the achievement of innovation. Over the years, we have shown that we can develop ground-breaking innovations based on collaboration and a pioneering mentality. Our founders join forces in Novel-T to create an ecosystem that aims to take advantage of opportunities for sustainable, innovative industry. Because innovative companies shape the future. The new knowledge developed by the University of Twente and Saxion leads to new spin-off companies that are the employers of the future. In turn, companies produce challenges that engage researchers and students. Students turn their ideas into new start-ups that can conquer the world. By working together and putting innovation and entrepreneurship first, we can help each other achieve the best results.
