Tess Rutgers van Rozenburg - Rottier

Founder Value Track Network

“An exchange for purpose and profit driven innovation.”

“A GPS for entrepreneurs who deliver high tech solutions to global challenges… and therefore a useful tool for the players in the market too”

“A broker who connects people and actions to facilitate collective development for the good”

All of the above can be checked. But it’s perhaps it’s even more important that we find ways to accelerate the pace to find solutions and make them work for all of us. And that we understand that bigger benefits can be gained when we are in sync of what we really want to achieve. That has been my drive to come up with the Value Track Network, to provide one way to achieve a win-win-win: Economic Value. Societal Impact. Personal development.

Value Track Lead Energy Storage

Too often we speak in passive terms of what is needed. “The energy transition is necessary to decarbonise the economy.” Or say “we” need to address climate change. But who is the “we” in this sentence? And even if “we” agree (when we sign climate agreements), do individual people and organisations see the same problems and same solutions? Do they benefit equally? Through my work, I want to bring together people and organisations who dare to take the actions necessary to create change (in my case the energy storage market). And to help unravel the complexity into a manageable and actionable roadmap. Working with the Ideas from Europe team helps me with the networks to identify and contact the right people and offers me the opportunity to get together during events, such as the Global Entrepreneurship Summit or the European Entrepreneurship Summit. The Value Track methodology provides me with a toolkit to systematically collect and validate data, which in turn I can use to strengthen actions and matchmaking.

Koen van Engelen

Founder Venture IQ

Global challenges, such as climate change, are becoming increasingly urgent. Based on our experience as a VC investor we realised that startups and scale-ups are part of the solutions. Though too many corporate / startup collaborations fail, which is a waste of time and resources. This triggered our drive to develop technology scouting software and services company to help corporates and investors make better partnering and investment decisions in order to drive ROI and to play a proactive role in bringing innovative technologies to market.
Through the Value Tracks we receive continuous updates on the search criteria based on the input of groups of stakeholders. Both quantity and quality provide a perfect scope and insights for our global search for each Value Track.
