ImpactCity Startup Lab
Friday 15 June 2018

For startups from all over Europe to explore the Dutch startup ecosystem and see what we are working on here in The Hague

Economic success goes hand in hand with social impact. Or it can anyway – and it should. We call it the “impact economy”. It’s an economy that has an enormous potential to grow – and create beautiful things that benefit all of us. That’s why the city is investing in people, places, experiments, and ideas.

The goal of this lab is twofold. It’s for founders of impact startups to explore the possibilities of the international community in The Hague and access new market opportunities. It’s for humanitarian organisations to explore the added value of innovative tech startups. So you must have guessed it by now, we are looking for a match.

TYPES OF TOURS
TOUR 1: Next generation technology
TOUR 2: Feeding the cities
TOUR 3: Humanity in Action

Join if you are an impact startup founder from Europe, an ambitious entrepreneurs who want to learn more about the impact startup ecosystem in The Hague, a startup entrepreneur who would like to matchmake with the right people in order to share experiences and ideas on creating an impact or a startup founder who wants to visit The Hague and see what the city has to offer for startups!

BRIANS TALK
