The province of Noord-Holland is initiating a Startup in Residence program. Startups are invited to collaborate with the Province during a 4 month support program to work on innovative solutions in the region. Our partner, Firmhouse executes this program in cooperation with a team of startup officers from the Provincie.

Specific sponsors have issued challenges for which they make a budget available of 5.000 to 10.000 euro. We match those challenges with possible solutions of startups in any form, such as a pilot project, proof-of-concept or launching customer trajectories.

 

If solutions have gained concrete traction during the course of the program, the province intends to maintain a sustainable relationship with the startup for further impact. This could come in the form of the Provincie taking on the role of customer, providing access to resources, expertise, or the province helping to secure onward funding.
