Join the DSA as VC Partner!

As a VC you are aware that the growing startup ecosystem has become an increasingly important driving force of innovation and economic growth. A recent study the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) shows that over 60% of new jobs are being generated by startups and new companies. Although politicians acknowledge this development, they are still more inclined to talk about startups than to talk with us.

To get the DSA up and running, a founding board has been set up consisting of recommended startup representatives from all Dutch regions as well as various domains, such as health technology, AI, blockchain, media, etc. All founding board members are start- and scalp entrepreneurs themselves. For Venture Capital firms we have a special partnership; a yearly fee of only €1250 will make you a ‘VC partner’. To ensure we are able to act as the community by and for startups, next to the VC-fee, expect you to bring on board at least 5 of your portfolio companies for a small yearly fee of €125 (startup member) or €1250 (scale-up member) . For this small fee your companies (whether they are a startup of scale-up) will get the equivalent of having their own lobbyist and spokesperson.

This is merely the first step to get started. We cannot do this without the commitment and support from you and the startup community, which is why your portfolio companies, as members, will play a central role in the association. The standpoints and agenda of the DSA will be fully decided by our startup members.
