Guest in the panel discussion:

Venture Capital: The state of start-up support in Germany and the Netherlands

The panel titled 'The State of Startup Support in Germany and the Netherlands' will examine the challenges and current landscape of startup support in these two dynamic economies, particularly in light of the recent economic downturn. Germany and the Netherlands have also faced these difficulties. The panelists will discuss how the recent downturn has impacted startup viability, investment acquisition, and market stability.

We will also discuss the potential benefits of market pressures causing the failure of non-sustainable business models. This conversation will explore how such a market correction can promote a more resilient and innovative startup ecosystem. Our discussion will center around the question: 'Which startups require more support, and which do not?' This will lead to a debate on the criteria and rationale for allocating resources and support to different types of startups. Factors to consider include innovation, sustainability, as well as economic and societal impact.
