Make Next Platform
To support young innovative high-tech scaleups, ASML founded The Make Next Platform in 2016 together with Huisman, Vanderlande and the non-profit Stichting Technology Rating. Thales NL joined as a co-founder in 2019. The Make Next Platform puts the partners’ network, competencies, expertise, and experience to work in answering questions that these scaleups encounter in their development. We help them grow into a sustainable company.
The Make Next Platform aims to help young technology companies that have moved beyond the startup phase and are ready to expand. These companies, so-called scaleups, face challenges such as finding the funding needed to grow, knowing how to target new customer groups, and recruiting new employees with the right skills.
Through exchange of best practices, business experience and coaching from corporate experts, the Make Next Platform partners aim to support them in their development to become global players by giving them access to their inside networks. Up to now, the Make Next Platform has screened more than 200 companies and engaged with the management teams of more than 50 of these. So far, seven scaleups have been adopted and more than 10 are currently in the pipeline.
