Ready to go International?


Landing Pad is the name of an international network of incubators and accelerators that gives you the opportunity to make connections with international markets and startup ecosystems. Our first two partnerships are with UnternehmerTUM and PoliHub. They offer the opportunity to ACE startups to explore the European market and startup ecosystems abroad. In turn, startups from their incubators have the opportunity to come to Amsterdam for an exchange visit.
