Startups change the world
Your startup is unique. There is no one-size-fits-all journey to making it successful. But some steps on your journey have already been taken by others.
Boost partners help you make the right connections. At the right time, when you need them.
We are a group of 50 entrepreneurs, investors and professionals: Boost partners.
We assist startups that want to change the world, that develop new solutions to customer needs and fix real societal problems.
Every year, Boost partners share more than 1.000 days of their social capital with startups like yours.
Tell us about your startup and let us know what kind of support you need to Boost your startup. We’ll respond within 48 hours.

Working with us
We are Boost Partners, a group of 50 entrepreneurs, investors and professionals. We are in the startup-building business.
We have a passion for startups that develop new solutions to customer needs and fix real societal problems. For entrepreneurs who are determined to build companies with lasting impact.
Startups change the world
We assist startups that want to change the world, that know what they know, but also know what they don’t. Startups that are open to building their team in order to fill the knowledge-, network- and skill-gaps they have.
Every year, we offer over 1.000 days of knowledge, network and skills to assist startups in filling those gaps. We have a track record of building teams, opening up networks, attracting partners and customers and jointly building businesses with significant impact. And we have a special interest in startups in the field of energy, clean & smart tech and web & mobile.
Lean in everything we do
Unlike traditional startup incubators and accelerators, we don’t have competitive startup programmes, pre-set acceleration tutorials or do ‘hit and run’ capital investments.
Instead, we zoom in on specific challenges of a startup and assign a dedicated team of Boost partners (business developers, legal advisors, entrepreneurs, sales managers, etc.) to turn those challenges into successful business solutions.
In everything that we do, we see ourselves as a bootstrapped startup too, applying Lean Startup principles such as process management, validated learning, iteration, and innovation accounting to the startup-building process.
How we invest
We act as a flexible collective that allows Boost partners from a wide variety of backgrounds to share their resources (capital, network, knowledge and skills) and work together to turn something good into something great. We have a strong desire to build something new and have a constant need to innovate, improve and boost better solutions. And we do that by working together.
We are less about sweet talk and more about helping you build a business. We usually take minority stakes in startups that we assist and are definitely not about controlling ownership in your business. Boost partners take part in a unique cooperative, through which we invest in startups individually, or as a group.
Let’s get connected.
