Duncan Stutterheim

​Duncan Stutterheim (1971) is a cultural entrepreneur in Amsterdam, well known as one of the founders of the legendary entertainment company ID&T. He has won several awards for his contributions to Dutch art, culture and economy.

Making his mark as the frontman of ID&T – the organization that fathered world-renowned events like Thunderdome, Mysteryland and Sensation – he sold his company for the highest bid in dance music history. He then invested most of his fortune and energy in cultural landmarks like Elementenstraat, the A’DAM Tower, and most recently Westergas.

Every company should do something good for the world. You take from society, you’re part of it, and you should give back.

An active member of the community, Stutterheim is a board member of Adam 750, the Dutch sports council, the Concertgebouw Orchestra, ADAM Music School, Artis and EarthWisdom. He was awarded the Frans Banning Cocq medal and the IJ-prize for his cultural contributions to Amsterdam, and has also won a prize for business relations between USA and the Netherlands. Moreover, he was voted Amsterdam Entrepreneur of the Year, Honorable Entrepreneur of Haarlemmermeer and Marketeer of the Year.
