We'd like to invite you to an insightful session of the AMS Startup Booster at AMS Institute on the 16th of June, from 15:00 - 18:00. This event is a great opportunity for young founders to learn and network.

This interactive session is designed around the theme of "Startup Funding Routes and Working with the City". It offers a unique opportunity to explore how early-stage startups can secure funding and support through various avenues, including Crowdfunding Campaigns, Bank Innovation Loans, and VC investments, as well as seasoned entrepreneurs telling their stories.

In addition, a representative from the Municipality of Amsterdam will be shedding light on how they support startups. Discover what conditions or requirements the Gemeente requires startups to fulfill to become launching customers through first pilot programs.

So come along to this session, a great opportunity to learn about each other's industries and build connections. Please register here.
