To reach the goal of positioning Amsterdam among the top three startup hubs in Europe, StartupAmsterdam has devised a programme of 15 measures based on five elements that startups need in order to grow. The programme was created in collaboration with Amsterdam's startup ecosystem.
These are the five elements crucial to startups: Talent – we want to make an abundance of startup and tech talent available. Clients – we want to ensure that startups have easy access to potential launching customers, corporate partners and first users. Content – we are creating Europe's most extensive startup event calendar. Capital – We want to ensure that sufficient growth capital is available for promising startups in the Amsterdam Area. And lastly, environment – we want Amsterdam to offer a true startup culture.
