Intro

As a venture builder, Holland Startup aspires to co-build successful startups with young entrepreneurs and graduates, and thereby to offer young talents the chance to shape society. Our program (3-6 years) is designed around a tight-knitted support structure, that entails qualitative assistance from our expert team (such as mentoring, workshops, weekly progress meetings, discussion sessions, pitches and so on) as well as financial aid amounting to a total investment of up to 210,000€ into your idea. In the first months, we also offer a monthly remuneration intended to cover your personal expenses.  

On grounds of the lean startup method (referring to insights from the book “Running Lean” by Ash Maurya), we encourage and support our co-founders to build products that propose original, cutting-edge solutions for pressing problems in industries such as FinTech, eHealth, eHR/Recruitment, and some more. Our realm thereby solely concerns technological innovation, meaning that the startups we want to build should be based on the three pillars: offering digital solutions, having a data-centric approach, and reaching global scalability. 

In order to enter Holland Startup as entrepreneur in residence, we look for someone who is enthusiastic about entrepreneurship and can fully commit long term to build up his/her own startup. It is not a prerequisite to have an idea upfront. Together with our team you are given enough time and help to discover your unique niche. You can enter our program with an idea upfront but you should be willing to reshape your idea based on our coaching. We create opportunities for you to find a suitable co-founder, as the teams we set up are always at least composed of two people with complementary skill sets and matching passion. You can apply if you already have a co-founder, then we will evaluate you individually and as a team. 

The program for the 26th and 27th runs from 9 AM to 7 PM and 8 PM, respectively, These days will be filled with team-building exercises, entrepreneurship workshops and information on Holland Startup's program. 

Candidates are expected to arrange their own travel and accommodation, (partial) reimbursement for this after signing can be discussed.
