Amsterdam is a hyper-connected hub for entrepreneurs, emerging tech and innovation. To realise its full potential, the City of Amsterdam offers StartupAmsterdam. This action programme aims to strengthen and showcase Amsterdam’s ever-evolving startup ecosystem. By leveraging assets that are already in place, it ensures innovative and sustainable entrepreneurship can flourish.
The Dutch government has announced it is making an additional €150 million available to its Corona Bridge Loan scheme for startups, scale-ups and innovative SMEs. The number of responses to the loan scheme so far has exceeded expectations, with the majority of startup and scale-up applicants coming from Amsterdam.
The event will take place online to help attendees maintain social distance while offering a look at the latest tech and new developments that are coming soon.
Many projects were jumpstarted at last month’s Hack the Crisis hackathon, which sought solutions to the problems caused by the coronavirus crisis. Startup Amsterdam spoke with the four winning teams about the current state of their endeavours – and what they still need to succeed.
