Accelerating Dutch Startups Since 2011

Accelerating Dutch Startups Since 2011

05-Apr-2016 by Sam Ahmed

Known for its highly skilled workforce, thriving startup community, and supportive entrepreneurial policies, the Dutch startup ecosystem is a formidable force.

Last year, startups in the country raised €429 million from 153 deals while the European Digital City Index (EDCI) ranked Amsterdam No. 2 for startups and No.3 for scale-ups.

With our strong ties to the country (two Startupbootcamp co-founders are Dutch), Startupbootcamp has been accelerating startups in the Netherlands since 2011.

To date, we have run 11 accelerator programs in the country, accelerated more than 100 startups that have raised in excess of €50 million with a total valuation of €257 million.

To celebrate our impact in the country’s startup ecosystem, we have teamed-up with Salesforce for Startups – a Startupbootcamp Global partner – to highlight key facts and figures in this infographic ahead of the Salesforce World Tour taking place in Amsterdam 14 April.

Packed with seminars, product demos and keynote speakers including Neelie Kroes, the Salesforce World Tour will welcome 5000 attendees to its doors.

What’s more, as part of Startupbootcamp’s partnership with Saleforce for Startups, several Startupbootcamp alumni such as Yippie, Dashmote, Red Tulip Systems, and many others, will showcase their companies at the dedicated Startup Village area.

Salesforce World Tour is a free event and you can register here.
