Bridging the Netherlands and the Silicon Valley entrepreneurship & innovation ecosystem.

Silicon Valley has been and continues to be one of the world’s most important centers of innovation and technology disruption. Given the Valley’s nearly unique set of assets―the presence of technology giants, world-class universities, abundant venture capital, and a hypercompetitive yet collaborative culture that celebrates both risk and failure―the Northern California region’s recipe for innovation has rarely been replicated.

DTSF connects entrepreneurs, large corporations, academia, and select professionals, with Silicon Valley. We do this by organizing invitation-only gatherings & educational programs, providing pro bono support, and facilitating knowledge exchange―bridging Silicon Valley and the Netherlands. |
