Groningen is packed with start-ups and scale-ups which, thanks to various cooperative links between the municipality, trade and industry, the Hanzehogeschool academy, the University of Groningen and other initiatives, receive every option to do what they are good at. And this works well: 10% of the Deloitte Fast50 – the list of fastest growing companies – are Groningen companies.
In recent years, Groningen has developed into a real start-up city, which is demonstrated by each priority list. For many years Groningen has been on the second place on the Deloitte Fast50 list of fastest growing companies, and Groningen start-ups such as HackerOne, Chordify, Tvilight and Diagnoptics are busy creating a distinct international profile for themselves.
