Delft

Delft is a knowledge-based city, with over seventy local high-tech institutes and enterprises offering plenty of working opportunities. Delft houses, for example, the TU Delft, Delft University of Technology, founded in 1842 as the Royal Academy, one of the best universities for engineering and technology worldwide.

Both TU Delft and Delft city council share a common interest in capitalizing on the available technological knowledge. One of the results of their combined efforts is The Young Entrepreneurs Society, YES!Delft, launched in 2005. YES!Delft offers people who want to start their own technology based businesses (in Dutch, simply referred to as 'technostarters') the perfect environment to learn how to best start up their own companies.
