"DSIF believes that young entrepreneurs should have access to all the means necessary to turn their great ideas into real startups that could potentially benefit society."


Dutch Student Investment Fund (DSIF) is a venture capital fund managed by students from the University of Twente and Saxion University of Applied Sciences. It was established in 2016 as the first student-run European venture capital fund. DSIF invests into innovative startups created by bachelor, master, PhD students or recent graduates and help young student entrepreneurs to turn their great ideas into real startups. While DSIF is structured as a venture capital fund, its primary goal is not to make the biggest return on investment but rather to support as many student entrepreneurs as possible. With the provision of capital, the fund also connects students with professional parties, gives advice, helps to look for follow-up investments, and way more.
