The GDBC in Groningen offers a platform for entrepreneurs in the digital economy to increase their visibility among students. In addition, Groningen entrepreneurs can benefit greatly from research that is being conducted just around the corner, at the UG. The Fund has made a substantial contribution to the start of this Chair in Digital Business, based on the idea that “you may be able to go faster on your own, but together you will get further”.’
