Kicksstart AI

Back in 2019, some of the biggest companies in the Netherlands got together to talk about the future of Dutch AI. They saw AI had the potential to make life better for everyone, but it needed an extra push to really take off. So they began working together under the name Kickstart AI.

That was just the beginning, and things have changed a lot since then. We've grown into a proudly independent organisation, with a dedicated focus on AI and the freedom to move fast. In 2022 Kickstart AI was officially founded as an autonomous non-profit initiative to accelerate AI adoption in the Netherlands.

We maintain close ties with our founding partners Ahold Delhaize, ING, KLM, and NS. But we stand strong on our own merit, developing bold initiatives to empower the Dutch AI ecosystem and make a lasting positive impact on society.
