You are Starting Up

At StartupUtrecht we believe that a startup is more than the sum of its parts. More than just a good idea, a kickass team an d a big market. We help regional startups and scale-ups with opening up the access to capital, skills & talent, customers and communities.





AND IT'S A WRAP! Crossroads 2021 was amazing! This year, from 8 - 11 November, StartupUtrecht and partners organised Crossroads 2021, the place for startups, scale-ups, investors and corporates to connect & grow. In the words of Heerd Jan Hoogeveen, director of StartupUtrecht:

"It's a wrap! Last week was full of great events for startups and scaleups: Crossroads. Organised by StartupUtrecht's partners ROM Utrecht RegionUtrechtIncimpact030 and many more. From missions to other countries, to investor pitches and tech talks. We closed it off with a live event. It was an amazing experience to see more than 120 founders, investors interact with such intensity. The vibe was just awesome."
