GO!-NH is a series of growth acceleration programs (accelerators) from the province of Noord-Holland. These programs are specially developed to support start-ups and SMEs in the marketing and scaling up of innovative products and services in the field of sustainability. They develop their business with training, tools and professional coaching by experts.
GO!-NH has put together three different programs, so that entrepreneurs receive the best support that fits the phase and size in which their company is going. In addition, the GO!-NH Academy is an accessible way of getting to know GO!-NH, since masterclasses can also be followed separately.
The exciting online kick off of the renewed GO!-NH program took place on 26 November, with inspiring examples of entrepreneurs telling about their success stories and setbacks during the corona crisis. Registration for the GO!-NH programs have also opened. You can register here.

The GO!-NH Accelerator is an innovation accelerator, aimed at startups and SMEs, whose product or service is still in the development phase.
You want to have proof that the market needs your innovation (validation). We will work this out during the GO!-NH Accelerator and together we will look for the right “problem-solution fit“. Your company has a clear vision of where it will grow.
The GO!-NH Growth program is for startups and SMEs who are in a further phase. They already have traction through turnover from customers and / or pilots.
The company is being prepared for growth thanks to a focus on repeatability and scalability. By means of growth experiments, a good ‘product-market fit‘ is sought and we work towards a ‘scale-up fit‘.
GO!-NH Scale is aimed at scale-ups and SMEs that are well developed in their current market and are ready to scale up to new markets or areas.
In this process, companies explore which new markets they can focus on and what this involves. GO!-NH Scale prepares the organization for significant growth leaps forward by developing a good “go-to-market” strategy and individual guidance by experts.
