Amsterdam is also seen as the startup capital of Europe and with Christmas and 2016 at the doorstep, startups in Amsterdam wanted to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with a video compilation of “A Merry Christmas”. “As this was our launching year, we wanted to share some of the startup energy with the rest of the world and call upon other startup hubs to join in,” says Michel Ko from Amsterdam-based startup Cloudtract who initiated the #startupwishes video by visiting hundreds of startups.
The Netherlands is a small country, so most startups think global from their first day of existence. Different initiatives support startups and (fin)tech companies such as StartupAmsterdam, StartupDelta, Rockstart, X from The Next Web, The Startup Orgy and many more. This startup merry Christmas compilation visualizes the ecosystem.
