Solving social and urban challenges in the Amsterdam area
Startup in Residence has joined forces with nine municipalities across the region to connect startups, scale-ups, innovative small and medium-sized businesses as well as social enterprises with key social and urban challenges.
The regional programme is a collaboration with the municipalities of Haarlem, Haarlemmermeer, Velsen, Diemen, Lelystad, Almere, Purmerend, Zaanstad and Amsterdam. They will work together to solve seven defined challenges in fields ranging from social work to engineering – they include how to decrease loneliness and how to restore building foundations. The complete list of challenges is available here.

There will be an information session on 20 September for all startups and scale-ups who are interested in taking part in the programme. The meeting gives potential participants the opportunity to ask questions about the challenges, incubator programme and registration process. Applications are open from 14 August to 14 October 2018.
