World Startup Factory: Impact Accelerator

World Startup Factory is active in the field of startup acceleration for 4 years. It is one of the major players in the Netherlands, and has connections with startup hubs and events around the globe. In 2018, World Startup Factory will run at least 4 accelerator programs, and in 2019 will be the top startup accelerator for impact-driven entrepreneurs in the Netherlands. Apart from the World Startup Factory programs, the team successfully supported various Dutch local, regional and national government organizations to connect with startups to jointly foster government innovation.

World Startup Factory believes entrepreneurship and new business ventures play a crucial role in developing a more sustainable, humane and livable world for all species. If you take up a significant challenge, they are willing to support you all the way. Building a thriving new enterprise takes a lot more than a 3-minutes pitch to investors. Helping founders takes more than casual feedback over a single cup of coffee. It takes passion, skills, knowledge and endurance from all the stakeholders to go from a zero to something far beyond. World Startup Factory gathers the bright and passionate who dare to take this journey with them.

World Startup Factory is an official accredited Startup Visa Facilitator in The Netherlands and can support foreign non-EU founders with growing their businesses in Europe.
