Innovative minds of the Netherlands come together in The Hague this year for a new edition of the How To Get There (HTGT) Summit.

The HTGT Summit was initiated as part of StartupDelta by Neelie Kroes and minister Kamp and is organized by Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship in collaboration with all the innovation hubs of the Netherlands.

Participants of the HTGT Summit can in one day see, feel, hear, and sometimes even taste what the innovation ecosystem of the Netherlands has to offer. All innovation hubs, from Brainport Eindhoven to StartupAmsterdam and from Kennispark Twente to The Hague Impact City, showcase their facilities en share their knowledge and expertise. Dutch corporations across sectors share their expertise, success stories and brilliant failures. Startups join in the Get in the Ring competition to do business with investors, corporates and fellow entrepreneurs.
