VU StartHub is a pavilion on the VU campus that can accommodate about 50 VU startups. A vibrant place for smart people with business ideas. Who know where to find each other to spar and exchange experiences and network. The location is highly visible and differs significantly in appearance from the rest of the buildings on campus. For startups that like to maintain contact and network within the VU community. Moreover, the coffee comes from an espresso machine 🙂

The pavilion is intended for early stage startups that have registered with the Chamber of Commerce. The startup must be science based and there must be a link to the VU. Are you not that far along yet? Then take a look at the Demonstrator Lab, they will help you further develop and shape your business idea. Or consider joining Amsterdam Startup Launch, the program that helps you from business idea to business plan through interactive lectures with experts and entrepreneurs.

The VU StartHub is developed by the team of VU Entrepreneurship & Impact. They also provide the programming and are responsible for keeping the community vibrant.

The VU StartHub is intended for early stage startups. If you have a Chamber of Commerce registration and there is a link with the VU (knowledge, personnel, strategic spearhead), please contact us! We offer 3 memberships within the VU StartHub:
