Those with a vision of solving problems know that anyone can be an entrepreneur. However, simply getting up and out there with an idea doesn’t guarantee success and that’s why there are numerous courses and guides to help one through the process. Startup Guide is a well-known publishing and media company that produces guidebooks and online content to help entrepreneurs navigate and connect with different startup scenes across the world.
Startup Guide’s expansion to Amsterdam
Amsterdam is one of the biggest startup hubs in Europe that ranked 15th on Startup Genome’s list of Top 30 Global Ecosystems 2019. It was only a matter of time that Startup Guide expanded to the city. We had a conversation with the company’s CEO and founder, Sissel Hansen, to find out more about the new book, how it will help entrepreneurs in the region and more.
Revealing more about its expansion plans to Amsterdam, Hansen says, “Amsterdam continues to show that it’s an ideal place for all types of startups to thrive. The city’s high visibility of local action programs that focus on the business sector’s commitment to social responsibility also demonstrates the ongoing progress they are taking in the social entrepreneurship field. With this in mind, there’s no doubt we’ll keep an eye on how Amsterdam’s ecosystem evolves. But for now, we invite you to use Startup Guide Amsterdam to explore what the ‘Venice of the North’ has to offer.”
