Programs & Funding for startups

If you’ve just started a business, you know it can be difficult to find investors. Especially risk capital is hard to come by. This is why our TTT-AI program also offers financial support to startups and a venture-building program. The TTT-AI Investment Fund offers convertible loans of € 250k to startups that show real potential.

Startups receiving a loan will also be actively supported in the development of their business, including:

  • product development
  • business modeling
  • team building
  • IP & legal strategy
  • go-to-market strategy & execution
  • cost & revenue streams
  • stakeholder management


The TTT-AI Investment Fund is managed by our partner, LUMO Labs. The criteria to qualify for the 250K convertible loans of the TTT-AI investment fund are, in short (contact LUMO Labs for the full list of criteria):

  • The startup is located in The Netherlands
  • The startup is science based: they build on knowledge of research organizations
  • The startup makes use of, or is developing, AI technology (TRL3 and higher)
  • The startup is in a pre-seed stage: no revenues / commercial activities yet
  • The startup has a positive impact on society
  • We prefer to invest in teams, rather than single founders
  • We prefer to invest in startups that are referred to us by the TTT-AI business developers


The TTT-AI program also offers support for startups moving into their scaleup phase that are in need of funding. We do not offer funding ourselves, but we’ve joined forces with a great deal of regional investment agencies and venture capitalists offering funding for startups.
