TNO is the largest independent R&D organization of the Netherlands with a mission to strengthen the competitive power of our business community. TNO actively creates spin-offs on the basis of its technologies when the technological and market risks lead to market failure. In doing so, our business incubator TNO Companies is instrumental. It is my role to create spin-off companies for TNO, thereby interesting international (strategic) investors and private equity to invest in this very early stage of the business life cycle, finding the executives to power our start-ups and doing whatever is needed to make it happen.
