Imagine the possibility of building your legacy from scratch. To have the freedom to use technology to solve problems you think are worth solving. Use your technical insights to build a product and partner up with a business expert to make it successful. And that in a way that suits your interests, with like-minded people in a startup environment.

How great would it be to build on new technology and bring it to the next level? Think about using Predictive Modelling in order to detect fraud. Deploy Robotic Process Analysis to improve business performance. Or work with Blockchain Technology in the context of smart contracts.

We have the resources in place to guide you from step to step and get investors on board. With the right mindset and support of Holland Startup, you can build a sustainable business model that will disrupt the market. 

So if you feel that your idea has potential to become the next billion euro business and you are:

  • A great teammate: you flourish when you work in a competent and harmonious team. Your fellow co-founder is your partner in crime.
  • Entrepreneurial drive: recognizing market opportunities and considering them in a businesslike manner. You’re open, curious, investigative and you have a positive mindset. You’re willing to take on the role of a pioneer and explore unknown avenues to achieve business advantage;
  • Drafting and executing plans: hands-on and experience in handling projects independently is what defines you. You’re decisive and willing to act, but are always maintaining flexibility to adapt plans according to new insights, changing circumstances, tasks, responsibilities and people.
  • Networking: you’re naturally strong at building and maintaining relationships with partners and customers; you’re a people’s person and have excellent social skills to make effective use of informal networks;
  • Analytically strong: you’re a star at identifying problems, recognizing significant information, making connections between data, tracing possible causes of problems, investigating relevant data;Innovative thinking: you are visionary and not afraid to think big. It’s time to come up with some brand new ideas that can change the future!
