Investing and innovating in Zuid-Holland

General information


Den Haag, Zuid-Holland


IQ Capital is the regional development agency for Zuid-Holland. We fund innovative and fast growing companies, assisting foreign companies to settle in Zuid-Holland and organize cooperation between innovative entrepreneurs, knowledge institutes and the government. We help develop Zuid-Holland as one of the most innovative regions in Europe.

Innovation Quarter finances in the form of equity participation and/or a loan in the company. Working together is central because our funding requires that (private) co-investors are or will be found. The IQ Capital fund is the bridge to other investors: because of our commitment they invest more easily. Our maximum investment is € 2.5 million and is always in the form of a minority stake.
