Why we do it?

"Innovation and talent, the only sustainable competitive advantages."

The rapid pace of technological development has put pressure on organisations to continuously innovate themselves and do everything possible to win the war on talent. We enable organisations to tackle both challenges at the same time.

We believe in meaningful matchmaking by involving young talents in your most pressing innovation challenges. Stand Out Now facilitates creative trajectories in which your experts and our technical talent can collaborate in an equal, open and inspiring setting. A setting in which both new ideas and innovators thrive.

What we do

Innovation & Matchmaking

In our creative tracks, we facilitate a powerful crossover between your experts and our technical students. We boost your organisation’s innovative capacity. And at the same time, by focusing on real-life problems and purposeful interactions, we provide the ultimate matchmaking tool in the war on talent. Through our extensive network at technical universities we can find exactly the right students to suit every firm and every challenge.


We kickstart innovation by facilitating high-energy knowledge transfer between experts and students. We have a network of 500+ students to select exactly the right brains for every project.

  • Involve a diverse group of students to complement your team’s knowledge
  • Students’ fresh view and up-to-date knowledge stimulate innovative ideas
  • Students’ critical questions and independent position can counteract internal politics and ensure an open conversation to align stakeholders
Innovatie en Matchmaking

No more headhunting or generic application letters. We provide you a unique way to connect with technical talent. Through our creative sessions, you can enthuse students about your firms’ challenges and culture.

  • Students get a meaningful and realistic view of your firm and culture
  • A great way to experience each students’ contribution, skill set and personality while ‘on the job’
  • The ideal stepping stone to a partime job, internship or startersfunction

Our approach

It all comes together in our creative sessions:
talent, experts and creativity.

An extensive intake will ensure that we exactly understand your needs. We will prepare the session up to the last detail and recruit students that fit the desired profile. During the session you will only need to focus on the challenge at hand and our facilitators will take care of the rest. Of course we end every session with some drinks to celebrate the result.

Process approach Stand Out Now

After the session our facilitators will transform the heaps of post-its, rough sketches and basic concepts into actionable results (e.g. collective visuals, infographics, mock-ups). In the last step we make a match between firms and students that have expressed a mutual interest.
