Mercator Launch - Catching up

When I first started to dabble in entrepreneurship not much existed at the Radboud University. It was really early days. After some time the University realized the need and Mercator Launch was created. But what is Mercator Launch? In their own words:

Mercator Launch is a pre-incubator for early phase entrepreneurship at the Heyendaal Campus in Nijmegen. And it doesn’t matter if you are a student, researcher or a teacher at the Heyendaal Campus, our mission is simple. 

We want to empower entrepreneurial minds.
We want to help develop and showcase your innovative business ideas and support the start-ups that emerge from these ideas.

I have known many of their team for years and can tell you that they are really there to support.

In this article we caught up on the latest developments and changes along the path.
