Our ambition?

To make the Netherlands the startup state of Europe. Where startups are not only in abundance, but are also successful, grow faster and operate on a more international basis than anywhere in Europe. We believe it is possible, and fast!

The DSA focusses on people, capital and rules. This is where we move the needle for startups.

How?

By making startups more visible, by sharing knowledge and by removing barriers together. To start with a Start Up BV, in which all taxes and subsidies are properly arranged and where the reward systems match the profile of a startup. Not dozens of different counters but one fixed point for entrepreneurs. Simple and clear.

“The DSA gives Dutch startups and scale ups a clear
voice that is being heard in The Hague and Brussels.”

Constantijn van Oranje
