Welcome to Amsterdam Impact!

Amsterdam has a long history of entrepreneurs who care for both the city and its residents. Social entrepreneurship – entrepreneurship that focuses on creating added value for society – is thus an integral part of the city’s mindset. And Amsterdam is a lively and living lab: experiments, innovations and collaborations are everywhere. The city is a hub for startups, and its geographical position within Europe makes it the ideal base for doing business with and expanding to Europe and the rest of the world.

The City of Amsterdam actively supports social entrepreneurship. To that end, it has launched a social entrepreneurship action programme with the motto ‘we connect for impact’. Explore the ecosystem on our impact map, find your connections at various events or contact Amsterdam Impact
