Nijmegen is the oldest city of the Netherlands. Yet, its young vibe is irresistible and tangible everywhere you go. We are sure you feel at home in Nijmegen: Old city, young vibe.
Around 2000 years ago, the Romans settled in Nijmegen. Or as they called it back then: Ulpia Noviomagus Batavorum. Now we know, Nijmegen is the oldest city of the Netherlands. However, the city proves to be of all times. Pay a visit to the Valkhof museum and learn all about ancient history. It’s only a few minutes by bike from the museum to the Honig complex. Here you can mingle with creative entrepreneurs, young minds. Next to a business area, the Honig is an amazing location for exhibitions, festivals and culture. And what to think of the many hotspots in the city centre, where you can discover, learn, chill and just enjoy life. In short, Nijmegen has it all: the good life.

In 2018 Nijmegen was the Green Capital of Europe. Many people in the city joined forces in challenges, initiatives and projects aimed at improving sustainability. One of the companies taking part was Sit & Heat, previously located at our campus. And they didn’t stop there. The Green Capital organisation is still working on various transitions on themes like: biodiversity, climate and food. To achieve their gals, they work together within various international networks.
Since Dick Bos has been coaching starting entrepreneurs as founder of StartUp Nijmegen (2016), he has noticed that they often do not know who their target group is, where to find customers and how to sell their products. As a result, fifty per cent of them quits their business after five years. “With POP HUB, we are partly responding to this phenomenon,” says Bos about his latest initiative. “As a starter you present your new product or service to a large and diverse audience, in fact all potential buyers”.
