Impact City Startups Lab (Tour and Matchmaking)

The Hague represents an unique hub that connects startups with governments, international companies, research centers, studios, and thousands of creative entrepreneurs. Whether it’s a United Nations organization, one of the many NGOs, art schools, or startups: The Hague, as international city of peace and justice, works on social and global challenges and builds solutions that work.

Economic success goes hand in hand with social impact. Or it can anyway – and it should. We call it the “impact economy”. It’s an economy that has an enormous potential to grow – and create beautiful things that benefit all of us. That’s why the city is investing in people, places, experiments, and ideas.

The goal of this lab is twofold. It’s for founders of impact startups to explore the possibilities of the international community in The Hague and access new market opportunities. It’s for humanitarian organisations to explore the added value of innovative tech startups. So you must have guessed it by now, we are looking for a match.
