Two years ago we launched a webpage called Founded in Holland.
The idea came up at one of those beer nights. We found out that there are some pretty cool startups in The Netherlands. However, they don’t always get the attention they deserve for being brave and hustling their asses off. That, we wanted to chance.
Today, we pull the plug on Founded in Holland
. It has been a fun ride (click below for an overview of our highlights). The Dutch startup ecosystem has grown and matured tremendously. The need to draw attention to our ‘gems of boldness’ has faded. We decided to pursue international growth for our company Go Weekly
(get in touch when you’re in need of a Design Sprint
for your product, or say hi when you’re ever in Toronto).
While we won’t accept new applications as of March 1, 2017
, the site will not just disappear. It will remain part of internet history
and stays available for the foreseeable future. We still welcome every startup to join this infamous startup list that got kicked of Product Hunt
by Ryan Hoover personally.
