If you’ve been following this site for a while you would have noticed that startups and scaleups from Amsterdam or the Netherlands raise funding all the time. However, only a small percentage of capital in the Netherlands goes to female entrepreneurs. However, these women are determined to change that and give female entrepreneurs a fair share in raising funds.
Amsterdam supports RISE – Female Hub
With the announcement of its financial support for the RISE – Female hub Amsterdam, the City of Amsterdam creates more equal opportunities for women and men in its startup ecosystem. The city invests €750k in the programme. This allows RISE to unite twenty Amsterdam-based organisations to create a three-year programme for ambitious women at different stages of their career.
