Seed capital

Using the Seed capital scheme, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy aims to support technical and creative start-ups. The ministry grants capital to investment funds that invest risk capital in innovative entrepreneurs in the technological and creative sector through this scheme. The Netherlands Enterprise Agency is responsible for its implementation.

Setting up an investment fund

The tender 2018 is open from 1 January to 31 March 2018. Emerging entrepreneurs can turn to the participating investment funds for this.

Foreign investors

The admission scheme for foreign investors in the Netherlands has been simplified.
