Amsterdam has always been a popular tourist destination, from its picturesque canals to beautiful buildings, and impressive museums to world-famous art galleries. But this isn’t just a city for weekend breaks and stag parties. Amsterdam is quickly becoming one of the most exciting tech hubs in the world. Often overshadowed by Berlin, this amazing city is finally being recognised in its own right thanks to various tech conferences, accelerators, and incubator programmes.
Almost 500 multinationals including Tesla, Netflix, and Miele X now have their European headquarters in Amsterdam and it’s not hard to see why The Netherlands is ranked as the world’s best market for tech companies, plus its strategic location in the middle of Europe is a huge pull.
