past programs & 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 program 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.
