Amsterdam is a great place to do business: it’s hyper-connected to Europe and the rest of the world, it’s packed with international and local talent, and its work-life balance is among the best on the planet. If you want to be part of a thriving business ecosystem – alongside cutting-edge startups, the biggest corporations, social entrepreneurs and all-round innovation – the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area is the place for you.
Amsterdam is home to many successful sharing initiatives, platforms and businesses across a wide variety of fields, as the sharing economy continues to expand.
It’s safe to say that 2016 was a lucrative year for startups in the Netherlands. Funding in tech-based Amsterdam startups was particularly strong in 2016, mostly thanks to the city’s ever-flourishing ICT industry. FinTech and MedTech startups did especially well.
With their new Amsterdam location to open later this year, B. Amsterdam is now Europe’s largest startup incubator.
