Meet the Dutch Startup Association

The Dutch Startup Association acts as the voice for startups and scale-ups when it comes to politics and government.

"Our ambition is that the Netherlands will be Europe’s digital frontrunner. If we want to get there, several things must change.

Our priorities are:

  1. Make it more attractive to pay employees in stock options
  2. Expand the startup visa for key staff
  3. More room for startups and scale-ups in government procurements
  4. Quick and easy acces when it comes to government support: no more Red Tape!
  5. More private investments on the market, reintroduce a fiscal arrangement for business angels

We can’t do this alone. We need your support. Therefore we need you to join the DSA. For a small fee we will lobby on your behalf. So that you can focus on your business.

So join the DSA today via and take a look which companies have already joined us:"
