What does it take to get accepted into the StartDock startup Visa Program?

Our application process consist of two steps. The first is an online questionnaire in which you answer questions about you and your startup, including uploads of your resume and draft step-by-step plan. After we receive the initial application fee, we will provide you with a comprehensive feedback report and a final decision within three weeks. Sometimes we invite you for an interview to discuss outstanding questions. We review your application by looking at the business itself on the one hand, and you as a person on the other. With regards to the business plan, we consider to what extent the idea is something new or innovative for the Dutch market specifically and if it has the potential to scale. When it comes to you as a person, we look at your professional and entrepreneurial background, what you’ve achieved so far in moving your business activities forward and your personal ambitions.
