Five years of Demonstrator Lab

At Demonstrator Lab, two locations: @Zuidas and @Science Park, researchers and students from the HvA, UvA, VU and Amsterdam UMC can go to develop and test their research-based idea for a product or service. In the past five years, more than 100 projects were launched, from which 21 start-ups have emerged. Jardo Stammeshaus (co-founder of startup Liion Power and most innovative student of the Netherlands 2021) experienced as the most important thing you need as an entrepreneurial student or employee with an idea is the space and facilities to be able to ‘start’. And that’s what Demonstrator Lab offers: technical facilities, support in making a prototype and coaching. In doing so, Demonstrator Lab reduced the step to entrepreneurship for Jardo Stammeshaus.
