Scale-up frontrunner LTO Network joins Techleap Rise Program

BCNL associate LTO Network has joined the launch of Rise, a program providing unprecedented support to the Netherlands most promising scaleups.


Today we’re proud to launch Rise, an ambitious program launched with top entrepreneurs like Pieter van der Does (Adyen), Ali Niknam (bunq), Steven Schuurman (Elastic), Chris Hall (Bynder), Michiel Muller (Picnic) and Gillian Tans ( to help the most promising scale-ups in the Netherlands to grow faster internationally.

We’re excited to showcase this first batch of companies accepted into the program after an intensive selection process: Easee, Floryn, LTO Network, Mapiq, Nico.Lab, Online Payment Platform, Polarsteps, Quicargo, Starred and Wizenoze. 

As part of the programme, the entrepreneurs will be put on the international map with corporates, investors and media. Founders are encouraged in groups of ten to fifteen participants to also learn from each other about the challenges of scaling up a company.  They receive support and feedback from top Dutch entrepreneurs who share their own insights and lessons learned with the new batch of promising scaleups. Every quarter Rise will help a new group of entrepreneurs.

Constantijn van Oranje:

“With Rise we want to create more Dutch technology companies that can measure themselves against the best internationally. We have found the best entrepreneurs in the business willing to help our most promising scale-ups with honest hard and constructive feedback. By learning from each other’s experiences and connecting them to the right parties, we create an innovative climate in which the tech leaders of tomorrow can rise above themselves.”
