Scale-ups

We believe innovation and disruption is key for a growing and changing society. Scale-ups are at the heart of this transformation, but typically require substantial amounts of funding, access to high value partners and support in financial optimization. This proves to be challenging as only 0.4% of the Dutch start-ups successful scale. We are passionate to facilitate scale-ups to overcome these challenging in order to create significant impact together.
