    How it works

    Since 2016, we invested over €1.200.000 of Smart Capital in products and companies that improve people’s lives. 
    We have a very clear focus on realizing social investments. We use the power of partnerships to improve the quality of people’s lives. We have three signature partnerships

    • Early stage companies, this could be as early as an idea with a business plan.
    • Accelerating companies that want to expand their business and scale their impact.
    • Mature companies that want to innovate to increase their impact on the quality of people’s lives.

    The way we work

    • Connect with one of our team members and we will have a call before setting up a meeting with the rest of the team.
    • We evaluate your plan or challenge immediately and within 1 appointment we will both know whether we want to continue.

    Every day people are victims of cardiac arrest. In the Netherlands there are 300 per week. The chance of surviving a cardiac arrest is smaller in Friesland than in other areas in the Netherlands. A comprehensive resuscitation network of civilian aid workers and registered AEDs can make the difference. We invested in the business plan, funding strategy, value proposition and the entrepreneurial experience. When we started there were 1.800 civilian aid workers and a few AEDs in Friesland. Within three years we set up an organisation and trained over 9.300 people to save other people's lives. By now we save approximately 93 lives per year. We work on network expansion and setting up a durable business case.

    As a team we have invested in the so called FUNN pilot project. Together with 6 school dropouts we co-created their own festival together with the other dropouts. In advance of the pilot we promised the school and the students that after 9 months they will be able to make a motivated choice for still dropping school or returning to it. From the 6 students in the pilot group 100% returned to school for education within 9 months. Another outcome was that the students had no longer addictions and motivational issues. A substantial rollout is planned next year by the YEP Foundation.
