Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Kora, created by Regus, is an international network of inspiring partners, events and places to work. It’s to help make a more entrepreneurial society by mixing people, ideas, education and business. Kora Directors and connectors will support customers to get inspired, evolve knowledge, skills and services and match people through our learning and networking events. Due to growth and expansion, an Innovations Director is needed to bring together graduates, startups, entrepreneurs and established local and international businesses into the Kora Community. He or she has a large local network in Eindhoven and the knowledge and experience to help grow an entrepreneurial society across the Benelux region. In concrete terms this means that the Innovations Director is operationally involved, leads the team and recruits new talent, is responsible for the P&L of all locations in the Benelux region and has a proven success in networking, innovation and entrepreneurship.

The world of Kora
Think Kora @ Evoluon
The Evoluon is a futuristic building that is shaped as a UFO. It’s designed by Dutch architects Louis Kalff and Leo de Bever. It symbolizes technology, progressiveness and inspiring design, all features that are characteristics of ‘Brainport’ Eindhoven. Kora at Evoluon is home to many leading events, awards and conferences – including the annual Innovations Awards.
Alongside these major events, every month, we hold dedicated receptions for Kora members to network and meet new people at our Casual Thursdays and our Kora breakfasts. You can take part in all of these events both within Kora at Evoluon and at all the events at all of our other Kora locations around the world online when you join Kora as a member.
