We’re incredibly excited to introduce the nine Dutch scaleups joining the latest batch of Techeap.nl’s Rise Programme. From AI-driven farming and sustainable delivery services to sleep technology and childcare, each company has been chosen due to its immense potential to pioneer the future of its respective industry. As part of the programme, all nine participants will gain access to priceless resources that will empower and unlock the next stages of their growth journey.

Techleap ensures that the nine selected scaleups have the best learning and network infrastructure at their disposal. Specifically, they gain access to leading experts, networks, and resources to learn from the best Dutch entrepreneurs and grow internationally. The programme also puts scaleups on the global map among corporates, investors, and media. The insights from the programme will also be used to further improve the tech ecosystem in the Netherlands and identify bottlenecks and solutions for the growth challenges of scaleups.

Below you will find more information about the 9 newly selected participants:
