ReStartup: a support program for crisis recovery
The Dutch Startup Association (DSA) is working with – and searching for – partners to help startups prepare not for the current situation, but the future. Their new programme will focus on dealing with a world of diminished consumer spending, broken supply chains, funding challenges and new codes of conduct in retail and office spaces.
Currently, the organisation is calling out to startups to help shape the tailored support programme, known as ReStartup, by filling out a short survey. The questions are meant to help them understand any key needs startups may have in the future. DSA hopes the information it gathers will help it better support the ecosystem.
By entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs
The DSA was founded – by startup entrepreneurs for startup entrepreneurs – in 2017 to help make the Netherlands Europe’s premiere startup hub. According to its official website, the association aims “to act as the voice of startups and scale-ups when it concerns legislation, economic policies, educational regulations and funding issues,” and believes startups are stronger when they work together.
