About Up!Rotterdam

The objective of the Up!Rotterdam programme is to make Rotterdam the best home port for forward-thinking startups, scale-ups, innovative SMEs and corporations that dare to think big.

Therefore, Rotterdam will provide the ideal innovation ecosystem for them to grow, and it will serve as the springboard to success.

We link and strengthen existing initiatives in partnership and we are working together with stakeholders to develop new activities.

The action plan is divided into five pillars, each with different projects and activities:

  1. Access to talent
  2. Access to funding
  3. Access to (international) markets
  4. Strengthening the ecosystem
  5. Positioning our region for innovative entrepreneurship
