Use the Startup Box
The Startup Box is an online tool that helps you to identify if there is a Dutch government funding instrument suitable for your startup. For many entrepreneurs, government funding is hard to navigate and financing difficult to find. The Startup Box explains what you need and what you can expect.
The Startup Box is an initiative of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, StartupDelta (now TechLeap.nl), Netherlands Chamber of Commerce KVK and Netherlands Enterprise Agency. If you have any questions about the Startup Box, email or call the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce.
