6 Dutch companies representing 6 different sectors join ELITE, Euronext’s European ecosystem of private companies accelerating sustainable growth and access to private and public capital.



ELITE today launches the first group of companies in the Netherlands in partnership with Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship (ECE), ScaleUp Company and nlgroeit: three leading Dutch partners which has supported ELITE in designing, building and implementing ELITE for Netherlands.

The first Dutch group includes 6 companies and represents 6 different sectors and based in three different regions in the Netherlands.

The expansion of the programme in the Netherlands follows the successful launch in Portugal earlier this year.

ELITE connects companies with capital: knowledge, relationships, and funding. This first group of pioneering Dutch companies joining today will follow a structured programme designed to help businesses to prepare and structure for their next stage of growth, via a learning path and mentoring to support management best practice and entrepreneurship; promoting relationships and opportunities with potential investors; and facilitating access to a full range of funding options, from debt to equity, from private to public capital markets.

Marta Testi, CEO of ELITE, said: “I am thrilled to see ELITE for Netherlands kicking-off today at Euronext Amsterdam. The 6 new Dutch companies add to the 124 firms that have already joined ELITE since the beginning of 2023 from different countries in continental Europe, a key year for us as it marks a new phase of growth in Europe as part of Euronext, the leading pan-European market infrastructure.
We are proud to welcome these ambitious companies and to start supporting them with access to skills, network and capital. We recognise that these companies are the innovators, job creators and drivers of economic prosperity, so accelerating their growth means supporting the growth of the countries and communities in which they operate. I would also like to thank our partners Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship (ECE), ScaleUp Company and nlgroeit which have contributed to the kick-start of ELITE in the Netherlands.
