Amsterdam is internationally known for having a vibrant startup culture. Exactly for this reason the first startup battle at the BCE was organized in 2017. Due to the success of the first event another startup battle was organized in 2018. However, for this event the Amsterdam Student Investment Fund and ACE helped setting up the event. The startups Smart Crops, FirstFloor and Ohnana Tents participated in the event and the latter ended up winning the event. Their tents are known for their great airflow, heat- and light blocking properties.

This year the startup battle will be organized with ASIF
