Our pitch to Startups


The Netherlands is the place where every startup in the world wants to be. Come to Startup Fest Europe and see what the ecosystem has to offer.

During Startup Fest we will welcome all international guests with open arms. This will be the perfect excuse for international talent to discover The Netherlands, and perhaps stick around: fast laning at our renowned museums & modern cultural institutions;
experience our diverse, explorative and open-minded culture, participate in hackathons, LAN parties and so on, visit the epic dance party on the final day!

Meanwhile – meet and mingle in our accomodation partner Zoku’s wonderful hotel rooms.
