The 10 Dutch startups scaling to the US East Coast in 2023 with ScaleNL Accelerator


ScaleNL Accelerator gives 10 Dutch tech pioneers access to tailored resources, dedicated advisors and bespoke expertise with the goal of making their US market expansion successful from day 1. This initiative is supported by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The program focuses on bridging the gap for companies between their Netherlands strategy and new strategy catered specifically for success in the US market.

The East Coast edition of the ScaleNL Accelerator will run from January to March 2023. The 10 Founders joining the program have been selected based on their current Dutch and/or European success, as well as their potential for growth in the US market.  



After a thorough selection process involving feedback from our trusted network in the US & The Netherlands, and a final selection made by our independent Selection Board, we are proud to announce the ScaleNL Accelerator – East Coast edition cohort! 


“Dutch entrepreneurs are helping solve global challenges, as reflected in this cohort. With 60% of the selected companies building ClimateTech solutions, and 30% of the Founders in the program being from a diverse background, this group reflects some of the highest priorities in the world today.”

– Camille Grotenbreg, ScaleNL Program Director
