The Netherlands is one of the thriving startup ecosystems in Europe. With many tech startups being born in the country, there are several competitions that are held to motivate them.
One of these is the Academic Startup Competition, which challenges scientific institutions and universities to nominate their best spin-off startups. These companies will race for the 10 Dutch Pioneering Innovations from science. Academic Startup Competition is an initiative of StartupDelta, VSNU and the Netherlands Academy of Technology and Innovation (AcTI).
