About BeStart

BeStart helps climate tech startups in the north of the Netherlands to make their companies successful. We support startups with technologies or services which contribute to a cleaner environment, water availability or to saving energy. We call this climate tech. However, startups which contribute to sustainability or the circular economy in other ways are also very welcome to apply.


BeStart network

By participating in BeStart you gain access to our extensive network in the Northern Netherlands. We know the organisations and companies looking for innovations and we help you to get in touch with them. That way you meet people who can help you with e.g. financing or that first customer. After each phase, you present your start-up to the entire network during the DemoDay.


Testlabs and business opportunities

In the North of the Netherlands there is still room. We have access to many testfacilities where you can validate and test your product. Moreover, there are plenty of opportunities to settle and everyone oozes circularity here.
