Today StartupDelta moves into a new phase to connect and accelerate the West Coast of Europe, building on the fantastic achievements of Neelie Kroes and her team. It is an honour, a pleasure and a challenge, but also a comfort to stand on her strong shoulders.
The strength of the Netherlands lies in its connected ecosystem of innovation regions. StartupDelta will continue to build bridges between main stakeholders in the Netherlands, Europe and the main innovation hotspots of the world. It will help develop, attract and serve excellent entrepreneurial talent in building world-class enterprises.
As of the 4th of July we will open our new headquarters at B. Amsterdam on the Johan Huizingalaan 763a in Amsterdam. Startups are most welcome to visit us in this energising startup space.
I'm also delighted to let you know that the regional organisers and partners of Startup Fest Europe have agreed that they would like to organise a second edition of Startup Fest in Spring 2017.
We will start off with a small core team and work closely with representatives of our Innovation hubs and other key stakeholders.
Let’s connect and accelerate the West Coast of Europe together!
