Breda Business Podcast

Our city is a hive of activity. Projects and innovations are vigorously realised in the Innovation Hubs from Breda Robotics to the Sports Vitality Hub strengthening the ecosystem. With Breda’s Economic Vision (2019) as a compass, we work hard together on Breda’s unique proposition: profiling the city as the international hotspot for Applied Technology and Creativity (TT&C).

We launched the BredaBusiness podcast to optimise the visibility of these developments. A podcast with, for, and by, enterprising Breda! Presenters Jabbo Smulders and Bas van Gerwen interview various Breda entrepreneurs.
