The first edition of the Amsterdam Venture Studios startup book will bed dedicated to Amsterdam based startup founders connected to the academic knowledge institutes. We are proud of all this talent, who play such an important role in creating much-needed solutions.
The startup book can help forge connections between founders, potential employees, corporate or government organizations and investors. We hope this book helps to create connections and will work as a first step towards fruitful collaborations.
We also hope to inspire other knowledge institute employees and students with this book to take action on their own entrepreneurial ideas and dreams.
Once the yearbook is published (September 2021) it will be made available for free on this website and sent out to our network.
