Amsterdam Startup Ecosystem
By value of companies founded since 2000, Amsterdam is Europe’s #3. The city is home to two of Europe’s most valuable startups – Takeaway.com and Adyn, with health tech and edtech the fastest growing sectors in the city.
The city has a long history of tech innovation. Did you know Dutchman Guido van Rossum invented the python coding language in 1989? Booking.com and Tomtom are some of the original tech companies that made the city home.
From vertical farming to lab-grown meats, these days Amsterdam is a hub for the innovation of agricultural technologies. Amsterdam’s Ag Tech and food startups are the second-best in Europe (based on a ranking that considers funding, performance and talent).
Ag Tech companies from outside Holland, such as Meatless Farm, also have hubs in Amsterdam.
The high density of startups in the city makes Amsterdam an excellent place for founders and those looking for roles at startups. According to Dealroom, the city is home to almost 3,000 startups at different stages.
One of the difficulties in the Amsterdam startup ecosystem is the struggle to attract the level of international investment that startups in London and Berlin do. Amsterdam startups see most of their investment coming from local sources.
Multilingual companies and events mean the language isn’t a barrier to becoming an active member of Amsterdam’s vibrant startup scene.

GrowthMentor was built upon the idea that every situation is unique, so generic courses and blog posts just don’t cut it sometimes.
To actually solve your issue you need to connect with someone who’s “been there done that” and have a back-and-forth conversation about the particular roadblock you are facing at this very moment.
Here are some tips.
- Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
- Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
- Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
- Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
- Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking.
- Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
- Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
- Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
- Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
- Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).
Use dynamic filters to find the perfect mentor for you with the right expertise, language, time zone, and availability you need.
