As first of its kind in the Netherlands, Startupbootcamp launched a convertible note fund for the 2015 E-commerce program. The scheme, created to support each of the 10 startups accepted to the next Startupbootcamp E-commerce program, will inject between €50,000 - €100,000 through a convertible note in addition to the existing €15,000 seed investment. According to Startupbootcamp’s Co-Founder, Patrick de Zeeuw, the scheme will give startups within the program greater flexibility and the ability to focus on other parts of their business.
