Together with the Dutch Ministry of Defence, Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, and several Dutch humanitarian organizations such as Red Cross, we’re looking for startups and scaleups, able to kickstart the rebuilding of Saint Martin. The most innovative solutions will be selected to work with these partners.

 

On Wednesday 6 September, hurricane Irma, the most powerful hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean, ripped through Saint Martin and caused unimaginable damage. Lives were lost and 91% of the buildings suffered damage of which one third is completely destroyed. Considering the current needs, full recovery of Saint Martin will take years.
