Startup in Residence Amsterdam launches a new program on the themes of sustainability and mobility! Registration closes on August 11, 2020.
The City of Amsterdam is once again looking for the best start-ups, scale-ups, innovative SMEs, and social entrepreneurs with creative and innovative solutions for the city’s mobility and sustainability issues. Solutions are sought for a wide range of topics, from 'emission-free recreational boats' and 'circular renovation' to 'inclusive mobility' and 'local food logistics'. Like previous years, this edition also has the so-called "wild card challenge" for both themes. If entrepreneurs have good ideas and solutions that are not described in one of the issues, they can register for the wildcard. The complete series of challenges can be found at www.startupinresidence.amsterdam
You can sign up from June 24, 2020 12:00 to August 11, 2020 23:59.
Startup in Residence Programme
Startup in Residence is the government's start-up programme. In a six-month programme, start-ups, scale-ups, and social entrepreneurs are invited to work on solving social urban challenges. The selected start-ups have the opportunity to test their product and/or services in the city. In addition, they receive guidance from professional mentors and their potential client. If successful, it is the intention of the municipality at the end of the programme to become the launching customer of the start-up or to enter into another form of cooperation. In addition, the aim of (all) the SiR programmes is for the municipality to make public tenders more accessible to smaller parties such as start-ups, scale-ups, and social entrepreneurs.
On Thursday afternoon, July 16, an (online) information meeting will take place where interested parties can ask questions about the challenges, the programme, and the registration procedure.
