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.
