About StartupAmsterdam:

In 2015, the City of Amsterdam teamed up with the private sector to devise a broad, cohesive policy focused on startups, scale-ups and initiatives that would accelerate their growth. Upon conducting an extensive literature review and talking to more than 250 stakeholders, an ambitious new action programme – StartupAmsterdam – was born.

Driven by a desire to strengthen Amsterdam’s startup ecosystem, StartupAmsterdam has launched and co-launched over 40 initiatives, supported numerous projects, events and campaigns and generated momentum that put Amsterdam on the global map of startup hubs within just a few years. The speed at which this has transformed Amsterdam’s economy proves that we are on the right track.

Having been extended for a new term (2019-2022) in January 2019, StartupAmsterdam is set to continue creating a well-functioning ecosystem that serves innovative companies wishing to grow sustainably in continued collaboration with public and private stakeholders.
