Join our community
At the Amsterdam health & technology center (AHTC), we are creating a global and diverse healthtech community. Our community consists of private and public companies, entrepreneurs, researchers, incubators, government institutions and other entrepreneurship support organizations.
We provide a collaborative environment for builders who want to join forces and speed up innovations and transformations in health.
The AHTC consists of four towers, connected by three atriums. It offers work space to 2,000 people, meeting rooms and a coffee and lunch lounge. It is easy to reach by public transport and offers a safe parking place for your bike or car. The AHTC is also an excellent location for conferences, workshops and social events.
