Time and time again, it is proven that as a female entrepreneur there are several extra hurdles to take. Despite Amsterdam being known for its tolerance and inclusiveness, starting a business is largely a men’s thing. The City of Amsterdam is now actively investing in promoting female entrepreneurship. These are examples to follow.
Amsterdam supports RISE – Female Hub
The City of Amsterdam recently announced its financial support for the RISE – Female Hub Amsterdam. With an investment of €750k in the programme, it aims to give women a fair shake in the startup ecosystem. RISE unites twenty Amsterdam organisations to create a three-year program for ambitious women at different stages of their career.
