Skilltostart is a team of entrepreneurs who moved with their families to the Netherlands on a start-up visa before and during the pandemic and joined forces to help people from different countries launch a new business or project in Europe. We have got over 4 years of experience in the field of European innovative start-ups from an idea to registering a company, receiving grants and subsidies, obtaining international patents, participating in international acceleration programs.

We are founders of startups and cooperate with Dutch and German facilitators. We provide only up-to-date information and recommendations, tested on our own experience. Skilltostart helps to create a step by step plan and implement the project, going all the way from idea to registering a company.
