Incubator for innovative entrepreneurial solutions in the cultural sector.
Amsterdam is home to a wide range of impact entrepreneurship opportunities. Whether you’re a startup in need of an incubator, looking to accelerate and scale-up your enterprise or ready to take on a major challenge, here you can find the right opportunity for your growth stage.
To stimulate impact entrepreneurship, we at Amsterdam Impact have co-created our own programmes. These include the Boost je Buurt (Boost Your Neighbourhood) challenge which supports impact entrepreneurs working to make Amsterdam’s neighbourhoods healthier, more inclusive and more sustainable. A number of enterprises are selected for each of the city’s seven districts and the most promising can win a business development programme and additional development funds. With the COVID-19 crisis reinforcing the need for more innovative business models, we created the RE:SILIENCE programme with the Goldschmeding Foundation and Impact Hub Amsterdam. This programme supported impact entrepreneurs to create more resilient businesses and emerge from the crisis stronger than ever.
Here we’ve put together an overview of the numerous options for developing impact entrepreneurship.
