Frequently asked questions

Contact us via email at hello@startupleap.org and we’ll get back to you shortly.

What does a partnership look like?

Ultimately, our goal is to create an integrate access network to Dutch entrepreneurship. As such, depending on the type of organization you represent, a partnership with us will look a little different. From incubators and entrepreneur communities we expect support with promotional material and access to speakers for our events. Commercial partners, still, we ask for trial versions of their services or benefits. In all cases, we offer you support with promotional activities, access to our expanding network of graduates and Dutch  partner organizations.

Are there any costs involved?

We emphasize the collective strength of the Dutch startup community and we'd therefore like to work with the resources that are available to you. Which means you can support StartupLeap without spending any money. However, several partners choose to either host an event or provide us with a budget for online advertisements.

Do I need to sign a contract?

No, you don't. It's all in good faith and we've received great support doing things this way.
