What we do..

"To create this atmosphere for people to share ideas, we organize interactive network events in a relaxing and informative way. The network events take place at inspiring locations, on a boat or while riding a bike.

Rob LacroixCoach at Menselijk Rendement Coaching

“Been to several of the "Amsterdam Startup Boot Businesses Meetup" sessions on a row now, all turned out to highly informative and useful.”

Joris RoodFounder of Eitje

“By far the most relaxed meetup there is for startups. Meet inspiring and helpful entrepreneurs while drinking a few beers with them works like a charm!”

Dorit RoestFounder of The Influencers Movement

“Great experience to get the opportunity to do a talk at the Startup Boot. Because every meetup is specified on a subject I felt that everyone was so eager to learn more about the subject I was discussing in my talk (Influencers Marketing) and that aspect - besides the nice weather and environment - made it so fulfilling and energizing to do! In summary: great way to meet fun, ambitious and like-minded people in this special Amsterdam-setting!”

Joost NautaCo- Founder of IMA - Influencer Marketing Agency

“By far the best way to meet interesting other startups & founders in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. ”

Barend JungeriusFounder of

“Attended an event of Startup Boot for the third time now and I can recommend it! Nick is a "networker pur sang" who managed to arrange interesting speakers again. Looking forward to the meetup in May on his boat/boot on the "Amsterdamse grachten". Check out the speakers; it will be epic!”

Conrad WhelanFounding team Uber

“Nick's enthusiasm for startups in Amsterdam is very clear when you meet him. He's leveraging his passion for creativity, business, and people by creating the Startupboot concept and trying to bring interesting, new, and informative speakers to the group every week.”
