Building blocks

The NL AIC works together on the necessary knowledge and expertise, resulting in five themes, also called building blocks. Those are important for a robust impact in economic and social sectors.

Start-ups and Scale-ups

Start-ups and scale-ups are an essential mechanism for economic growth, employment, and innovation capacity. These young companies renew the economy, invest in research, develop critical technologies, and can rapidly translate these into innovative services and products, thereby accelerating the adoption of technologies within organisations (public and private).

To be a front runner in the field of knowledge and application of AI, the Netherlands must take specific measures to support AI start-ups and scale-ups in their rapid growth as well as to retain them in the country.

Growth capital and facilitation of AI-driven start-ups and scale-ups support innovation and improve our position in the market.


In collaboration with other parties, the Netherlands AI Coalition (NL AIC) wants to offer access to every AI start-up and scale-up to the existing and/or newly set up innovation ecosystems. Access to capital, ecosystems, and data is also necessary to develop and scale up quickly. All that includes setting up a national fund for AI start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs, access to subsidised funds, attracting new talent and improving the connection of AI start-ups to hubs and data communities.
