Today, Minister of Economic Affairs Henk Kamp, Startup Envoy Neelie Kroes, and General Director IBM Harry van Dorenmalen launched the startupdelta.org portal at the HSD Campus. The portal connects 10+ innovation hubs in the Netherlands, including the Campus of The Hague Security Delta, Brainport Eindhoven and Twente Safety & Security. Together they form one of the largest and best-connected startup ecosystems in Europe.
With startupdelta.org, the Netherlands would like to attract talent, startups and investors, build an all-inclusive community and offer all information needed for startups to start and scale in the Netherlands. As part of the project, more than 14 public organisations translated relevant information into English and made it available through the platform making it the richest platform for startups ever created.
Startupdelta.org is a public-private partnership, initiated by the Ministry of Economic Affairs in the Netherlands and developed by DutchBasecamp, StartupJuncture and IBM supported by many partners from the Dutch startup ecosystem. The platform is built by IBM. From today, startups from all over the world have easy access to everything the Netherlands has to offer.
By HSD being part of the StartupDelta network of innovation hubs, it has also become easer for startups within the HSD cluster to find crossovers to and cooperation with other sectors. Also, this Dutch startup ecosystem is able to offer comprehensive information about startups, news, jobs, workspaces, events, meetups and funding.
More information about the other innovation hubs can be found on the portal.
