The Startup in Residence Programme will run from November 2017 until April 2018, with a final event at the beginning of May. After the first pilot programme in 2015, the City has decided to run the programme again in 2016. Based on the successes from the first two programmes we will start with a third programme in November 2017.

In the programme the startups are offered an intensive training programme, as well as the support of professional coaches or mentors. The startups will also be provided with working space and have access to the municipality’s network.

If solutions prove successful, the City of Amsterdam will invest in them as an investor or launching customer and thereby significantly kick-start the startup’s career. The City of Amsterdam seeks to work with (starting) businesses in a transparent manner to translate good ideas into solutions to social issues.
