The past few years, I’ve dedicated most of my time trying to connect the ecosystem of Groningen and put the Groningen startup ecosystem on the map. The ecosystem is now better connected and often mentioned as the second best ecosystem of the Netherlands (after Amsterdam). Groningen has achieved this by working together with so many different partners. To me, it proves Groningen is small enough to build strong relationships and is large enough to think big.
Want to help make Groningen a better place with your startup? The Groningen City and Province are looking for ambitious startups to come up with new and innovative ways to tackle social issues and urban challenges. Startup in Residence is a 5 month program where you’ll get intensive coaching and training, and the City and Province will act as launching customer for the most promising solutions.
