Amsterdam Venture Studios


Do you no longer want to run your business from the coffee house or from your attic room? Are you looking for a flexible workplace in the middle of the buzzing startup scene? Then the Amsterdam Venture Studios on the Amstelcampus is just for you!

Students from the Amsterdam colleges and universities can become a member for a period of one year, with the chance of an extension. In this way they can work, receive customers and network from the Amsterdam Venture Studios.

It is the perfect location, in the middle of the Knowledge mile, to take the next step with your company as an entrepreneur. The location is visible from the street and has WiFi, coffee and tea.

This free flexible workspace especially for student entrepreneurs is the ideal step, before you eventually grow to a real office in Amsterdam!

If you become a member of the Amsterdam Venture Studios, there are numerous events and programs that you can participate throughout the year for inspiration or to take your startup to a higher level.


Every third Thursday of the month there is a talk show, in which an innovative entrepreneur talks about his or her startup journey.


Every second Thursday of the month we host a lecture at the Tropen Museum on innovation and entrepreneurship with regard to the SDGs.


There are events throughout the year where you can collaborate with students from different studies. The focus is on devising creative solutions and sustainable innovations for real-world problems.


This is the "flagship" program of the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. The program helps students with an innovative idea to develop this into a real startup. 10K consists of an intensive week, coaching, 14 master classes, feedback nights and a Dragons ’Den. This is the equivalent of a training camp that will prepare you for the real match.
