About Shared Facility Capital

The fund invests in (semi-)open on-campus facilities that Groningen-based startups and scaleups can use. The fund, which was launched in 2021, has already invested in Innolab Holding, paving the way for innolab Chemistry & Engineering.

From ownership to use – more interconnections and more shared facilities at Campus Groningen. Thanks to the Shared Facility Capital fund, new open innovation facilities for startups and R&D departments are now possible on the Campus. Investeringsfonds Groningen took the initiative to launch this fund to support the growth of Groningen companies on the Campus. Representative IJzebrand Rijzebol of the Province of Groningen: ‘The creation of these “shared facilities” is vital. Their added value will be visible on the Campus and for the region for many years to come. The Shared Facility Capital fund is expected to boost the impact of the pre-existing open innovation facilities: Innolab Agrifood and Innolab Chemistry & Engineering.’

Shared Facility Capital can invest 250,000 euros or more in initiatives that meet the following principles:

  • Facilitate innovative SMEs at Campus Groningen: this means that the investment must result in facilitating the business activities of innovative companies based at Campus Groningen.
  • The investment has a stimulus effect on the Campus ecosystem.
  • The proposal must include a sound business model.
  • The legal form of the entity receiving the investment must be BV, NV or CV.
  • The investment must be made along with at least one investment partner from the Campus Community Fund (i.e. Rabobank, Triade (or affiliates), RUG Ventures (or affiliates), NOM).
  • The company must have a management/Board that bears responsibility for the company.
