BDF set up the Inqubator Leeuwarden in 2010. It is now the hotspot in Friesland for students, start-ups and professionals to turn a good idea into a new business. Inqubator distinguishes Stand-ups, Start-ups and Grow-ups and provides tailored and practical support to them. It operates from two locations: the general incubator in the city center and the Water Inqubator located at WaterCampus Leeuwarden.
Inqubator plays hosts to foreign start-ups as well. Inqubator facilitates them to enter the Dutch market via a dedicated soft landing programme.
