About State of Dutch Tech 2024

Dutch tech has reached a critical point. While the ecosystem boasts unlimited potential, a shift in mindset and focus is needed if we are to cement the Netherlands as a genuine deep tech powerhouse on the global stage. 

It’s time to think big. Ambition and collaboration must be at the heart of any long-term vision and are integral to truly embracing tech entrepreneurship and addressing the ecosystem’s scaling barriers. 

State of Dutch Tech 2024 is a catalyst for shaping the future of tech in the Netherlands and the rest of the world. Building on last year’s success, the event presents a unique opportunity to connect with 350+ policymakers, academia experts, founders, investors and other key stakeholders with a common goal of driving this essential transformation forward. 

The Netherlands boasts some of the world’s most exciting, innovative startups, fast-growing scaleups and talent. For this to continue, embracing an open economy and inclusive culture is crucial. It’s now imperative that we unite and act to forge a clear path that allows scaling businesses to flourish and establishes the Netherlands as a world-leading tech hub.
