HB Incubator

Six start-ups selected for Incubator Programme

01 June 2017

Dental Robotics, Dutch Analytics, Felyx, SkelEx, Wolk and ZIVVER have been selected to take part in Houthoff Buruma’s Incubator Programme. After presenting short but powerful pitches, these start-ups were judged to be the most promising participants of the selection day on 31 May. This means that for the next two years, they will receive premium legal support at a start-up rate.
Twelve of almost fifty entries were selected to present a pitch for a place in the HB Incubator Programme. This programme offers participants two years’ access to legal support at a much reduced rate, enabling them to further professionalise their business.
The high quality of the pitches made it difficult for the jury to reach a decision. The jury was impressed by all of the pitching start-ups, but the jury believes that the start-ups selected distinguish themselves through their professionalism, legal requirements and the scalability of their product or service.

About the HB Incubator Programme

Houthoff Buruma's Incubator Programme enables start-ups to obtain premium legal support at the much reduced rate of €50 per hour, with a maximum of 200 hours, for a period of two years. A team of young and talented lawyers supports the start-ups and gives them advice on all legally relevant aspects, such as company structure, financing, commercial contracts, personnel, intellectual property, and taxes. In earlier editions of the HB Incubator, Lendex, Nerdalize and Bird Control Group were among the start-ups that Houthoff Buruma successfully supported.
