Our Vision

Innovation is becoming more and more important as a keystone for economic growth and creating employment. Startups, scale ups and grownups encounter many challenges in their road to successful growth. Briskr is a consortium of organizations which support entrepreneurs facing these challenges.


Briskr is the program that helps startups and SME’s to grow faster and make a bigger impact on Health and High Tech. Companies in these sectors encounter a lot of challenges in their road to successful growth. We support entrepreneurs to face these challenges.


Briskr believes that interaction between knowledge-intensive companies, knowledge institutions like universities and governmental institutions is essential to realize innovation. This interaction is even more important in the top sectors Life Science & Health, High Tech Systems and Materials and Chemistry or any cross-over between these sectors.


Briskr has developed three programs to support innovation:

  • An incubation program, focused on (young) startups;
  • An acceleration program, focused on scale ups;
  • An activation program, focused on established SME and grownups.


The Briskr consortium is formed by the most important partners in the field of support for the Health and High Tech sectors. The involved parties are: Business Cluster Semiconductors, Municipality of Nijmegen, Health Valley Netherlands, Kadans Science Partner, Novio Tech Campus, East Netherlands Development Agency (Oost NL), Province of Gelderland, Radboud University, Radboudumc and SMB Life Sciences.


In addition to the core partners, associate partners strengthen the network. Business Cluster Semiconductors, Rabobank Rijk van Nijmegen and The Economic Board are the first associate partners and will be followed by others shortly.
