Amsterdam-based SaaS startups that raised €10M+ in 2022 and are hiring right now



Last update:

Software as a Service (SaaS) companies are revolutionising the world of online business with their innovative approach to software development. 

SaaS companies are on the rise as more and more businesses are turning to cloud-based solutions to run their operations. These companies offer numerous advantages that make them an attractive option for businesses regardless of their size. 

Firstly, SaaS companies offer a ‘pay-as-you-go’ model, which can save businesses a lot of capital in the long run. With this model, businesses pay only for the resources they use, which can also help reduce operating costs.

Secondly, SaaS companies offer a scalable solution that can grow with a business. As businesses need change, a SaaS company can scale its services up or down to meet those needs. And this is why SaaS companies are so popular with small businesses.

Additionally, SaaS companies often have strict security protocols in place to protect customer data from being hacked or accessed by unauthorised users.

The Netherlands is one of the most innovative countries in the world with a strong focus on technology and innovation. It comes as no surprise that the Netherlands is also home to some of the most successful SaaS companies in Europe.
