Driven by innovation

Innofest helps parties who work with innovative solutions on the challenges of today and tomorrow. In short, parties who want to make impact.

Innofest gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to test their innovative prototypes in practice. This happens at festivals and other living labs: test locations that come as close to reality as possible and are therefore very suitable for validating assumptions. Innofest often works on behalf of government and public organizations.

Testing in living labs

Innofest views festivals and other living labs as micro societies. The temporality and challenges of these locations, and legislation and regulations mean that there are often more possibilities than in the ‘regular’ public space. These living labs are a perfect testing environment.

Innofest works with a team of innovation experts who guide the participating innovators before, during and after the testing on location.

The Green Deal Circular Festivals support green growth by stimulating circular innovation at festivals.

Test like Innofest

To test well is to dare to fail. Because every entrepreneur has their own issues, the innovation experts at Innofest use different testing methods.

By following the Innofest method, you prevent that your innovation turns out not to be satisfactory in a later phase. You get evidence that’s crucial in discussions with potential investors or launching customers.
