Expanding in Europe from Amsterdam

Amsterdam’s tech sector has welcomed another global player with the launch of Techary’s European hub in the city earlier this month. The leading provider of technology solutions is expanding its European operations and chose the Dutch capital as its new location.

Techary is currently headquartered in London and also has locations in New York and Singapore. The company describes the expansion as a response to customer demand and the Amsterdam hub is offering Techary’s full range of services with the primary focus on facilitating procurement and logistics requirements for clients with presence and staff in Europe. 

Announcing the move, Techary CEO Tom Stephens said: “We are delighted to continue our geographic expansion with the addition of our new Amsterdam hub. Since the UK left the European Union, we’ve witnessed first-hand the logistical challenges imposed on our customers [and] we have decided to invest in a dedicated hub to serve customers in-region.”

Amsterdam’s offer: a magnet for global businesses

Amsterdam’s thriving tech sector continues to attract new companies and businesses. North American fintech companies Trovata and Buckzy established European offices in the city in June, with Buckzy president and CEO Abdul Naushad describing Amsterdam as “one of the world’s oldest and most respected banking and finance hubs.”

A robust digital infrastructure and fast and reliable connections to the rest of Europe make Amsterdam an attractive location to start, adapt or scale a business. Innovative entrepreneurship is actively encouraged with a host of incubators, accelerators and opportunities for public backing contributing to a vibrant startup scene. Dutch startups and scale-ups attracted a record-breaking total of €4.3bn of investment in 2021, more than doubling the amount raised in 2020.

A liveable city attracting international talent

A well-educated workforce and international outlook – more than 90% of Dutch people speak English – also help tech firms thrive and attract talent from all over the world. The Dutch capital is considered one of Europe’s most liveable cities and a recent survey by the Intelligence group ranked Amsterdam the tenth most popular city globally for European workers.
