Briskr: a broad network of partners

Nijmegen is the city of health and high tech. Almost 30% of the population works in healthcare, often in advanced and innovative organisations like Radboudumc, Maartenskliniek and others. And Seminconductors have been produced already in Nijmegen since 1955 by Philips in the past and now companies like NXP and Nexperia.

A focus on startups and innovative SME’s is important to create the right vibrancy in the region to grow innovation and employment. The role of Briskr is to support this ecosystem of large companies and small startups and innovative SME’s. We do this by organising networking activities, support to startups and the creation of large projects where the future is invented.

Briskr is the program that supports startups and SME’s in order to grow faster and make a bigger impact on Health and High Tech. Companies in these sectors encounter a lot of challenges in their road to successful growth. We help entrepreneurs to face these challenges.


‘The life sciences & health business community in the Nijmegen region contains a mix of exciting new start-ups, fast-growing scale-ups, SME’s and pharmaceutical companies. It is great to be part of Briskr network together with partners such as the municipality of Nijmegen, Oost NL, Rabobank, the Economic Board, Janssen Pharmaceuticals and the Radboud Universities.

The workshop was a good opportunity for me to confront my own ideas about how my business is going; very inspirational and it was a good opportunity also to learn from other entrepreneurs.
