Imagine an entire country working together to achieve a single goal: to create the space where entrepreneurs stand up, start up, and scale up! Welcome to the Netherlands! strategies are about linking up, changing the system, and making an impact: aimed at Capital, Talent and Networks – a brilliant initiative!

With help from partners in the Dutch government, corporate and educational institutions, the financial world and many others, June 29, 2015, saw the launch of the digital portal – the new flagship and helpdesk for start-ups. Henk Kamp, Minister of Economic Affairs, Neelie Kroes, Special Envoy for start-ups, and Harry van Dorenmalen, General Manager of IBM Netherlands, launched this digital platform, which offers insight into the entire start-up ecosystem of the Netherlands, in order to provide start-ups with a complete overview of potential investors, as well as offer support, fiscal information and an overview of financial regulations. The aim is to position the Netherlands as one of the top three most attractive start-up ecosystems in Europe.
