Amsterdam is a hyper-connected centre for European tech startups and the talent they require to thrive. To help the local ecosystem realise its full potential, the Dutch capital launched StartupAmsterdam, a public programme that fosters economic growth and collaboration.
StartupAmsterdam is your access point to entrepreneurial success. Need investment, mentoring, a supportive network or tech talent? You’ll find it all in the startup capital of Europe.
The City of Amsterdam is dedicated to nurturing innovative startups and scale-ups. StartupAmsterdam was introduced as a public programme, which has co-launched and supported over 40 initiatives, projects, events and campaigns since its inception in 2015. By assisting with capital, talent and local resources, it put Amsterdam on the global map of startup hubs.
StartupAmsterdam facilitates positive change with an emphasis on sustainability, and encourages an innovative and diverse ecosystem. This adds value to the city we call home by empowering its entrepreneurs, business communities and citizens. And we’re just getting started.
StartupAmsterdam supports a wealth of projects, events, communities and programmes that aim to improve Amsterdam's already-stellar startup scene. Check out the initiatives we’ve helped launch.
