This time we will discuss about how you can get Dutch governments grants to kick start your startup. The discussion will be about what grants are available for entrepreneurs in the Netherlands, but looking in particular at the WBSO (a research and development grant).

Our speaker will be Rik van der Wel ( is the owner of De Subsidie Informatie Groep (, a cooperation of independent entrepreneurs specialised in government grants for dutch SMB. Rik started his organisation in 2010, when he saw a lack of support for businesses that wanted to file for grants. His mission is to spread the word on what grants are available and making it easy for entrepreneurs to get the most out of them.

After the talk, we will have a Q&A session and then networking. We can buy beers from the bar to get the conversation going.

The meetup will be at our friends from The Thinking Hut (, a super cool co-working space in the heart Amsterdam.
