“The Netherlands is small but mighty,” says Maurice van Tilburg, Managing Director of Techleap.
The Netherlands has leaped forward to develop thriving tech and innovation sectors, a trend gradually spreading across the continent. This growth can be attributed to the Netherlands’s government’s supportive policies, and the talent and drive of the Dutch people. As a result, the future looks bright for the Netherlands’ tech and innovation industries with strong foundations.
A report from Sifted reveals that the Netherlands features 11,000 startups, 19,000 founders, and a total of 145,000 people pushing the boundaries of imagination.
In 2021, investment in Dutch startups and scale-ups had tripled to €5.3B, compared to €1.7B in 2020. Also, the number of deals increased from almost 300 reached in 2020 to more than 400 in 2021.
