Through conscious investment, we can ensure growth and continuous improvement for the future. At Jeveka, we invest in more than just our own people and our relationships with customers and suppliers. We also make investments in a sustainable and promising future - through sponsorship.
Jeveka sponsors innovation and sustainability
For many years, we have provided support and sponsorship in a wide range of beneficial projects involving students at technical universities and universities of applied science. By working closely with these students, we can support technical innovations in addition to playing an active role in shaping a sustainable future.
Some examples of projects that we support:
Formula Student Team Delft
The Formula Student Team Delft has been designing, building, and racing Formula-style cars since 1999. Formula Student Team Delft’s racing car (shown in the photo, below) is 100% electric. This electric racing car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/hour in 2.2 seconds using four electric motors that supply a combined 187 HP (specifications from 2017 model). Jeveka likes to sponsor projects like this, because they combine innovation, sustainability and the advancement of knowledge.
The Hyperloop is a transportation concept which is as convenient as a train, while being faster than an aeroplane. In 2015, Elon Musk launched a competition aimed at developing this modern and energy-efficient means of transport. Students at Technical University Delft (TU Delft) formed a team and founded Delft Hyperloop. They built a pod that shot through SpaceX’s Hyperloop test track in California in the summer of 2017 – and Delft Hyperloop won the first prize! They are still working hard to make the pod even better.

This team of TU Delft students is constructing an exoskeleton that ultimately will enable paraplegic patients to walk again. The team is working hard to come up with solutions to the many challenges involved, from motorisation issues to weight-saving issues. The exoskeleton is tested each year during a special obstacle course.
