SBIC Noordwijk and Rabobank have continued their long-time cooperation by signing an extension to the current incubation partnership.

Rabobank and SBIC Noordwijk will continue to work together to support space related startups in their ambitions. As an incubation partner, Rabobank is a highly valued participant in the Tender Evaluation Board of the ESA BIC Noordwijk programme. Next to that, the Rabobank Startup & Scale-up Team participates in the community and helps entrepreneurs with knowledge, network and advice on financial solutions.


Danny Winkel, director SME at Rabobank: “When startup pitch their idea to the Tender Evaluation Board, we look at the business model and at the level of entrepreneurship. The Rabobank Innovation Loan may be a solution for entrepreneurs in the start-up phase of their innovative business. Depending on the needs and phase of the startup, we will discuss the possibilities together. For example, we recently matched a startup from the SBIC community to our Carbon Bank. This is how we innovate together.”

Martijn Leinweber, COO SBIC Noordwijk: “We are delighted to continue our partnership with such a high level partner. Both Rabobank and SBIC have innovation at its core, so we’re looking forward to another year of fruitful cooperation.”
