We raised €400.000 in funding from G-Force Capital and the Regional Investment and Development Agency for the Northern Netherlands
We are more than excited to share that we raised capital to unlock the next stage of Young Heroes. With this investment, we want to expand our team and further develop our platform.
“Young Heroes already serves companies nationwide and we notice an ever-growing momentum in the market. We have strong growth ambitions, and the investment gives us the push to go faster. We found experienced partners in G-Force and the NOM who want to continue this journey with us. We are looking forward to it immensely!”, say Eva van Leeuwen, Co-Founder of Young Heroes.
We empower young professionals to confidently shape their future by building self-confidence through knowledge and community.
At Young Heroes, we believe in sharing: sharing stories, sharing experience, sharing advice. Together with our coaches, we want to give young professionals the support and sparring partner they need to succeed in their personal and professional lives.
Because sometimes, you simply need someone coaching and cheering you on from the sidelines.
Made with ❤️ in the North.
We are a small, international team of people in Leeuwarden, Friesland who want to see young professionals succeed in the workplace. We are branching from the established and award-winning research and marketing agency YFK which has a strong culture of development and learning and is already working with the “Young Hero” approach of matching experienced experts with young professionals, embracing what both individuals have to bring to the table for each project. Also, we like to have fun at work. And coffee.
