KNOWCO

KNOWCO is an online matchmaking service that brings businesses and academics together. [1]

Overview

KNOWCO was founded by Jara Pascual​ and Ingrid Van Gilst in 2017. The duo met at Erasmus University and found that their skillsets were quite synergistic. Together they are working tirelessly to streamline how the world of academia collaborates with businesses. [1]


The KNOWCO website features magazine articles about the intersection of business and academics. They also have a podcast​ called "Business of Collaboration" which features conversations between business executives and professors. They also feature dozens of success stories, such as Széchenyi István University​ collaboration with AudiHungary​. [3]

How It Works

KNOWCO members can search for professors or startups through a network that spans 87 countries, they can then create a request for a workshop, brainstorming session, strategy check, white paper​, and more. The request is finalized by agreeing on the agenda, kickoff meeting, timing, rate and type of activity. It's that easy. [4]
