Startup in Residence

The Startup in Residence programme connects startups and scale-ups with key social challenges in Amsterdam. Founded in Amsterdam in 2015, the programme invites both Dutch and international entrepreneurs to tackle these challenges in collaboration with the local government. Their innovative solutions impact the City as well as its citizens.

The Programme offers startups 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.

The City of Amsterdam 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. Come join one of our programmes!
