Startup in Residence

Amsterdam Metropolitan Area

The  Startup  in  Residence  programme  connects  startups  and  scale-ups  with  key  social  and urban challenges  in  the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. The  programme  invites  both  Dutch and  international  entrepreneurs  to  tackle  these  challenges  in  collaboration  with  the  local  government.  Their  innovative  solutions  impact  the  region as  well  as  its  citizens.

The Metropolitan Area can significantly benefit a startup’s or scale-up’s prospects, by investing and/or becoming a launching customer or partner. We bring together a network of committed entrepreneurs, mentors, civil servants and partners which benefits both the City of Amsterdam and you.
