As a small country full of tech-savvy people, the Netherlands is a great place for setting up your tech startup. If you are planning to expand and do business in The Netherlands, there are a couple of things you need to know. We ask Willem-Frederik Metzelaar, business development manager Benelux at EIT Digital, about his do’s and don’ts for scale-ups that want to go Dutch.
Metzelaar helps Dutch enterprises with their expansion to other countries. A big part of his work at the EIT Digital Accelerator also goes the other way, as he supports scale-ups that are looking to land in the Dutch market. “The Netherlands is a very interesting market for tech companies. It may not be a big market, compared to countries such as Germany, France or the UK. But the Netherlands is very open to innovation and is a highly developed and well-structured technological environment.”
