Increased innovation in sectors aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals is key to economic growth. These goals are already reshaping global markets and capital flows, bringing impact businesses to the spotlight and making them stand out in the competition.

We are interested in teams that try to improve the likes of social inclusion, quality of democracy, healthy environments, road safety, traffic management, circular economy, energy efficiency, occupancy mapping, digital security, critical infrastructure, well being, care systems (especially elderly) and e-health solutions. Our main drive is to accelerate growth of ventures who focus on future solutions with positive impact.

World Startup Factory sets up a lively environment where startups can gain industry-specific insights, connect to both local and international hubs, validate their ideas with potential customers and strengthen their business cases day by day.

past programmes & startups

In the past years we welcomed more than a dozen startups to accelerate their ventures in The Hague. We designed and tested a solid programme and gathered a dedicated community of experts, industry leaders and mentors. Our community of investors supported several startups with capital. We constantly evaluate our actions and methods to improve our performance. That’s what we expect from the founders who join us. We shouldn’t act differently.
