Massive amounts of cash are flowing in 2021. In the second quarter of this year, the total funding raised by Dutch startups already far exceeds that of the entire year of 2020. More than a third of the startups that raised funding in the first half of 2021 is from Amsterdam.
Record funding Dutch startups and scaleups
In the first six months of 2021, Dutch startups together raised a whopping €3B. A year ago, Dutch startups managed to raise €500 million in the same period while the entire year of 2020 ended up with €1.7B in funding. This is shown in the Quarterly Startup Report, compiled by Dealroom.co, Dutch Startup Association (DSA), Golden Egg Check, KPMG, de Regionale Ontwikkelingsmaatschappijen (ROM’s) and Techleap.nl.
