Mark Rutte at Onegini office
We presented our company and products in the area of 'frictionless banking', which we developed with partners like Samsung, Aegon and Infosys. Vincent Philipsen of Onegini: "HSD provides access to knowledge and market introductions. The real innovations start on the lower levels, start ups for example, and within HSD it is inspiring to keep track of the innovations. Networking is key, we learn from each other and the other big plus is the access to talent here." Prime Minister Mark Rutte asked whether these kind of collaborations also deliver. Philipsen: "Yes! We are doing really well. One great example is the Doing Business in Dubai programme which was initialised by HSD and InnovationQuarter. With a group of entrepeneurs we presented ourselves in the Holland Innovation House which was launched at one of the largest technology events in the world: GITEX. We have now entered a tendering process which we would not have had access to without this programme.
The prime minister was led through the campus of HSD where he was introduced to facilities including living labs, meeting and training facilities, flexible offices and the SME Support Desk. TNO showed their new Cyber Threat Intelligence Lab where they explained their expertise in cyber security and their research within so called dark web projects together with EclecticIQ. EclecticIQ is a startup which recenlty received funding through KPN Ventures.
