Meet the 200 #DutchTechHeroes fighting Corona
In the current crisis, the Netherlands is increasingly dependent on digital and technological solutions from startups and scaleups. It is therefore more important than ever that we empower & accelerate the tech companies that help us survive and fight the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why Techleap.nl launched the overview of Dutch Tech Heroes fighting COVID-19.
From startups and scaleups in healthcare and business continuity to education and lifestyle, there are so many tech companies that are helping to fight corona in the Netherlands, it’s hard to keep track of them all. With this top list, we want to give a view of what Dutch tech has to offer in this crisis.
The 155 identified startups fight corona in the areas of health, education, job recruitment, enterprise software, media, and food. Together they raised a total funding of 671 million euros and they offer work for a total of about 6,228 employees. 21% has at least one female founder.
Nils Beers, CEO Techleap.nl: "In this time of crisis, Techleap.nl wants to empower startups in need and startups that help fight COVID-19 with their solutions. With this overview, we put the spotlights on the startups who contribute to the fight against the coronavirus through their services and products. By doing that, we hope to accelerate their growth.”
We’ll keep updating this list so you can stay on top of all the latest initiatives to celebrate. Startups and scaleups that want to be included in the list can apply here. We'll review the applications before adding them.
