As a newcomer in the German market, it usually takes three to five years before you can even close a deal. The companies seem a bit cautious, says the Prince: "I think we can learn from the places where innovation sometimes goes a bit harder, like Sillicon Valley. One may keep the maps on the forest here a little too carefully, while very generous contacts are being handled. '
By bringing entrepreneurs and companies into contact with each other, a first step can be taken: 'You have to start somewhere', according to Prince Constantijn. 'But if they have taken that step, and they are standing here, then you must also ensure that they get access to the right companies. And then you also have to dare to help them over that threshold.
