Beschrijving van het evenement


After successfully bringing together 45 tech cities and 80 representatives in Amsterdam during the first ever Summit centred around Ecosystem builders, StartupAmsterdam in collaboration with TNW brings you the second edition of the StartupCity Summit in May 2018.

This time, we are reaching for the stars and becoming the centre point of the global startup ecosystem, because in 2018 the StartupCity Summit will host 150 cities with 2 representatives each – that’s an staggering 300 city representatives, influencers, entrepreneurs in residence, incubators, and more… sharing their best practices, and developing a global collaborative network!

The aim of the summit is to discuss the current and future role of local governments in a rapidly developing ecosystem. By focusing on peer-to-peer learning and a hands-on approach, this event will help you develop strategies that will strengthen your tech hub.
