Start, grow, scale your impact startup

Since 2008 we have helped more than 4000 startups to start, grow and scale their impact business. We support you at the most crucial stages of your business, and connect you to vitally important partners to succeed.


Impact Hub Amsterdam supports you at the most crucial stages of your business. We help you start, grow, or scale your business and increase your impact in the Netherlands and beyond.  We offer in-house programs, such as the Business Model Challenge and the Investment Ready Program, but we also collaborate with corporate, governmental, and other organisations to co-design customised accelerators across multiple sectors and impact areas.


Does your  business bring an innovative solution to the Dutch market? The government issues one-year residence permits for foreign startups. To apply, you need a facilitator. As an official facilitator, Impact Hub Amsterdam can help!


Looking for people passionate about building a radically better world and for the right tools to fuel your impact business? Look no further! Become a member of Impact Hub Amsterdam and start connecting with changemakers across The Netherlands and around the globe! We bring together different actors that would otherwise not meet and exchange. The collaborative nature of our communities creates connections that not only increases your social capital, but also helps you to accelerate your growth and boost your impact.

ALUMNI WILLICROFT - What happens when you combine a cheese lover with a passion for the planet? Yes, you guessed it. Willicroft. This alumni and rising star offers plant-based cheese products and now available at Waitrose (UK), Wholefoods (UK) and in more than 100 Albert Heijn stores in the Netherlands and Belgium.
ALUMNI PAPER ON THE ROCKS - Paper on the Rocks has developed notebooks made from the revolutionary Cradle-to-Cradle ‘stone paper’, made of stone! No trees, water or toxic substances and bleaches are used to produce their beautiful Rockbooks. Environmentally friendly stationery made for anyone that wants to change the world by the stroke of a pen.
ALUMNI KLABU - Sports as a driver for growth and connection - that is the KLABU spirit. It doesn't matter whether you're kicking a ball, we all feel the power and joy of sports. But we don't all have the same opportunities. KLABU is the club that unlocks access to sports. Starting where it’s needed most: in refugee camps.
ALUMNI PLASTIC WHALE is the first professional plastic fishing company in the world. A social enterprise with a mission: make the world’s waters plastic-free and create value from plastic waste. They have a fleet of eleven boats made from Amsterdam Canal Plastic. It is their goal to go ‘out of business’: overfishing is a positive phenomenon in their case.
