Startup Ecosystem Overview The Netherlands is home to numerous influential startups that have developed into global players, including Booking. com and Adyen. The country offers an outstanding level of urban innovation and quality of life to both local entrepreneurs and immigrating talent. The Netherlands even offers a Startup visa for non-EU citizens, and has set up an ambitious Entrepreneurship Action Plan consisting of different measures to fund and support entrepreneurs. In addition, the Netherlands has registered record numbers of VC investments in the past few years. Considering the amount of funding and support from agencies such as Techleap.nl, it is not surprising that the country has the ambitious goal of becoming a ‘unicorn nation’. On the other hand, this level of progress comes with some drawbacks for startup founders who might get discouraged by the high cost of living and by the rigorous labor laws protecting employees. The Netherlands is already primed for global scaling, especially considering the high level of English spoken in the country and the tax structure which encourages the immigration of foreign workers. The country is also culturally impacting the global startup ecosystem with strong tech media and events such as TheNextWeb, and bootstrapping thought leaders like Pieter Levels, founder of Nomad List.
