We’re a team dedicated to connecting and empowering tech founders and CxOs in the Netherlands!

 We run programmes, host events, create and share resources, work with VCs and LPs, collaborate with the government on startup policy, and make meaningful connections
to help startups grow.


We have a thematic and systematic approach to make sure we provide real impact


There are areas where we can see that a lack of knowledge-sharing is holding a sector back; a large part of our approach is connecting people to share insights and learn together.


We connect the ecosystem nationally and internationally. Whether it's bringing together scaleups to new markets or regional organisations to share expertise. We do this to build a single united ecosystem so we can all create better conditions and overcome challenges together.


Through the work we do we spot bottlenecks that need addressing. Through our projects and programmes, we intervene and work together with founders and stakeholders to devise a new reality where success is more likely to occur. Whether that's increasing chances of funding, finding the best talent, or entering new markets.

We are providing unprecedented support for the most promising scaleups in the Netherlands. Here are some we have already worked with.
