10 startups from the Netherlands you need to know about

Every year, The Next Web holds hundreds of interviews with young startups in order to shortlist the cream of the crop and invite them to Boost, our early-stage growth program at The Next Web Conference.

With the eleventh edition of our flagship Amsterdam conference coming up in May, the TNW Events team has already conducted hundreds of interviews (but there’s still time to apply). From these interviews, an impressive collection of promising start ups from around the world is starting to form. Among the successful applicants are many startups from the Netherlands and, being an Amsterdam-based company, we want to support them by shortlisting 10 Boost startups to watch.

Check out the next 10 companies that have been invited to participate here, before heading to our Boost page for more information and to submit your company:
