Although the number of Corporate Venture Capital funds investing in the Netherlands has doubled over the past 5 years, the share of scaleup investments by corporates in The Netherlands is lower than in the rest of Europe, the US and Asia. There is also less investment per deal. As a result, the Netherlands is missing the opportunity to be future-proof and to build the companies of the future.
This is evident from the report The next chapter for Corporate Venture Capital in the Netherlands by Deloitte and StartupDelta. The report was launched recently in the presence of Special Envoy of StartupDelta, Constantijn van Oranje.
