Creative start-ups in The Netherlands
Earlier this year the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs asked KL to explore what kind of difficulties creative entrepreneurs run into when starting up their firms. Apart from studying a number of creative industries initiatives in different Dutch cities, KL also looked abroad to the UK, Finland, Belgium and Australia. Creative investor NESTA (UK) caught our special attention.
KL’s Joeri van den Steenhoven, Kim van den Berg and Marieke Rietbergen have been working very hard lately to finish the final draft of the creative start-ups report. The main results from the research will be published on this blog shortly, and are open to debate.
